What's good IC fam? We have some really exciting news this week - we are proud to announce the Australian tour of UNCATEGORIZED, a talk and a world first master-class in photography by Chi Modu.
It's been a nine-month whirlwind as we strategized to bring a completely fresh experience to the shores of Australia - and with a little convincing, Chi Modu was open to the idea of running his very first master-class, where he will impart over 3 decades of photography knowledge in the art of creating an icon.
For the uninitiated, Chi Modu is the iconic hip-hop photographer who snapped some of the most famous shots in rap - Biggie in front of the Twin Towers, Mobb Deep's debut album cover, the head-shots of Snoop Dogg's Doggystyle and of course the largest collection of unreleased 2Pac photography owned by anyone, period.
UNCATEGORIZED stems from a wider exhibition series, the title of which marks Chi's open-minded approach to his work. "I wanted to create something that is the opposite of putting labels on everything and make a statement against stereotyping," he explains. "My work does not fit into any one stereotype and neither do I."
The legendary photographer for The Source and The New York Times, in a world-first, will teach the art of creating timeless images through two intimate 3-hour master classes in Sydney and Melbourne. Chi will be displaying the tricks of the trade which led to his iconic status in both hip-hop and photography.
