"From East Coast to West Coast, hip-hop music became as much a look and a lifestyle as it was a sound. CONTACT HIGH celebrates the photographers who played a role in bringing hip-hop's visual culture to center stage." - Karen Bruckner, @KCRW.

📸  @jorgepeniche Instagram Takeover – "I had the privilege of working with the legendary @nas for a billboard commissioned by Salon Ramsey, a high-end salon based in Atlanta. I was commissioned for the shoot without being told who the talent was for privacy reasons. Once I agreed to take on the project they revealed his name, and I immediately started brainstorming. The shoot was scheduled for a week from the day I agreed to shoot the billboard. Preparation for the project went down to the last minute. Decisions on whether it would be shot in LA or New York, on-location or in-studio, whether we’d use a female in the shoot and what the concept would ultimately be remained up in the air. I caught the flu two days prior to the shoot-date. Fortunately, I sweated it out and when the shoot came around I was at about 50% better, but still ached and pained. I wasn’t in the best spirits, but I knew I had to honor my commitment. Nas arrived at the East LA studio – where we shot – only to find out that he too had the flu. It was all too fitting that both of us had the flu. I sympathized with him knowing how he probably felt and I assured him that our shoot would be short and sweet. With a freshly painted cyclorama, female hand model, and studio lights in place the scene was set, nothing too fancy or too busy. Channeling my inner-Avedon, we created a beautiful set of portraits while Nas got cleaned up. Within 30 minutes we had our billboard. I could best describe this experience as ILLmatic. Pun intended."

📸  @jorgepeniche Instagram Takeover – "As an editorial photographer and journalist I often times found myself shooting artist during their publicity run for a project they either where about to drop or had just released. I shot this photo of @kurupt_gotti in 2010 during the publicity run for his sixth studio album, Streetlights. When doing my research on Kurupt I saw the cover for the album being promoted. The project title and album art didn’t connect in my opinion so I challenged myself to do my rendition of the cover via this editorial spread. Prior to shooting this photo we weaved through LA traffic doing our interview as his publicist manned the wheel. About a half hour car ride later we landed at the 6th Street Bridge where a lot of iconic LA hip-hop editorials have been shot, including a 1993 Cross Colors ad featuring fresh faced Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Daz and last but not least, Kurupt. I like these types of details coming full circle almost two decades later to be reimagined visually. We shot several rolls using my Pentax 67 equipped with Ilford Delta 3200 Pro film and Kurupt illuminated solely by the streetlights that lit the alley. See what I did there! The final product was a poised Kurupt with street lights from LA’s most celebrated and now defunct bridge."

📸 @jorgepeniche Instagram Takeover – "This photograph is arguably one of the most recognized in my career thus far. It’s special for a myriad of reasons. I shot this photo of my brother, the late great @nipseyhussle in 2010 in our old creative space in LA off Wilshire and Alvarado. This photo along with the digital photo booklet we released to accompany the music project was a byproduct of several conversations between Nipsey and I about how we’d present his story in the most authentic manner possible. This portrait was shot on my Yashica Mat 124G Medium Format TLR Camera with a close-up kit that I had purchased just months prior to this shoot. In the photo you see a fresh-faced Nipsey with little facial hair, black t-shirt, signature gold Cuban link chain, and a fitted hat that read, “I AM THE GREATEST”. Everything Nipsey and I did was intentional; nothing was by chance or a mistake. The final presentation of this photograph came in the form of an album cover for Nipsey’s critically acclaimed and revered “The Marathon” mixtape. The cover bears this image with a graphic touch where I overlaid Nipsey’s lyrics on his face and highlighted in red text “The King of L.A. is Young Nipsey”. Again, nothing was by accident. We proclaimed ownership of the throne in 2010 and time has proven for that statement to be true and well deserved. Long Live Nip Hussle The Great! The Marathon Continues! [SWIPE LEFT]"

📸  @jorgepeniche Instagram Takeover – "Here’s an exclusive look at one of my contact sheets for @groovyq breakthrough project “Habits & Contradictions” album shoot from 2012. The first frames of the contact sheet reveal the original concept for the album cover. They didn’t translate to be very striking so I went into my mental rolodex mid-roll and referenced the iconic 1981 Avedon shoot with Nastassja Kinski and The Serpent. I’ve always loved that image from Avedon for its composition, beauty, and erotic quality. That said, I saw an opportunity to create a contemporary remix of my own that aligned with Q’s album title. The last 4 frames ultimately defined the look of the project and one of them became the album cover image. These photos were shot with my Pentax 67 and a single portable clamp work light. Nothing too fancy, just the bare essential. Be resourceful!"

📸 @jorgepeniche Instagram Takeover – "I’ve had a long running history with the Top Dawg Entertainment family since 2006. I was introduced to @jayrock and @kendricklamar via working with @losangelesconfidential. I had the opportunity to document a lot of their formative years. This particular photo of Jay Rock was shot in 2009 at the Nickerson Gardens for a @streetwisegear campaign. Jay Rock always proudly waves his hometown flag of Watts everywhere he goes so I saw it fitting we shoot the campaign on his home turf. I wanted to shoot him with community members because he’s always been the people’s champ in my eyes and never left them behind through any level of his success. Luck would have it as we were shooting portraits a swarm of kids raced out of the gymnasium and joined us for the shoot. It was a sincere an honest moment that you couldn’t plan. The universe gifted me with this moment and fortunately I had my Pentax 67 loaded with Kodak Portra 160 film to capture it."

📸 @janettephoto Instagram Takeover – "In 1990 I took a trip to Los Angeles to photograph the West Coast hip hop scene for my upcoming book 'Rap Portraits & Lyrics of a Generation of Black Rockers' published in 1991. I shot N.W.A. outside their recording studio and later that day met Ice Cube in Inglewood. This is a portrait of him outside his mom's house. No longer with N.W.A., he had recently released his solo album 'AmeriKKKas Most Wanted.'" @icecube @faheykleingallery

📸 @janettephoto Instagram Takeover – "I first met Salt 'n Pepa in 1986 when a British teen magazine asked me to photograph them for a story about New York hip hop. We spent a fun hot summer afternoon walking around Alphabet City taking photos on the street. They asked me to photograph them for their first upcoming album and a year or so later we got together again to take photos for their new record 'Push It.' They arrived at my studio wearing these amazing jackets made by the one and only Dapper Dan, hoop earings, gold chains, Kente cloth hats, spandex tights - these photos came to represent girl power. Salt 'n Pepa are still going strong today and their style is iconic." @saltnpepaofficial @faheykleingallery

📸 @janettephoto Instagram Takeover – "In 1983 I was staying in LA when a writer introduced me to the Hoyo Maravilla gang. I spent that summer driving out to East LA to take portraits of the HM gang members. One day these three girls appeared and agreed to let me take their photo. Almost 30 years later 'Dashwood' published a book of my Hoyo Maravilla portraits and thanks to social media I reconnected with these, by now, three fabulous women. They told me that most of the guys I had photographed were either dead or in jail. These women had brought up families, survived the gun violence, had great jobs and remained best friends." @faheykleingallery

📸 @janettephoto Instagram Takeover – "‘Spin’ had asked me to shoot Outkast in the studio. At that time I was obsessed with the 4X5 large format camera, it is a slow way to work, the subject has to pose and stay still for minutes. Outkast posed, Big Boi was so hip hop and Andre looked amazing, wearing some trousers he had made himself. They kept playing this hypnotic song over and over. Andre asked if I liked it. I said I couldn’t get it out of my head: it was ‘Hey Ya!’. It had the lyric ‘shake it like a Polaroid’ and we took polaroids that day of course." @andre3000 @faheykleingallery
