The gallery filled with rap superstars is supplemented with images of children in Jamaica, faces from Katrina, and a pitbull photographed in Paris, giving the show breadth. I asked Jonathan Mannion if he felt like shooting rappers has reached it’s end game. “I feel the opposite. I feel like it’s hit restart.” Mannion told us referring to the new faces of hip hop like A$AP Rocky and Kendrick Lamar. Jonathan Mannion Rough Around the Edges is on view at Milk Gallery in New York through July 7th, 2013.
