Classic by Jonathan Mannion: Art Basel Miami – Presented by Reebok

In collaboration with Reebok Classics, crazy talented photographer Jonathan Mannion, will be showing a unique exhibition of his work during Art Basel Miami 2011.  Having been given his first big break many years ago by Heavy D, Mannion has gone on to shoot virtually every major hip-hop artist and rapper, including the large majority of album covers for Jay-Z. Aptly entitled, “CLASSIC” the exhibit will showcase a wide array of Mannion’s most celebrated and recognizable work with many of the hip-hop industry’s past and present icons. The four-day exhibition will also feature a special collaborative series of illustrated photographs and prints that Mannion created alongside artists such as Rick Ross, Rakim, Fat Joe, Mos Def, Fabolous, and Ja Rule.  From what I am told, all proceeds will from sales are going to charity.  Below is shot I took at JM’s studio a few months ago.
