Frozade Moments: Classic Street Photography of Ricky Powell
by Ricky Powell
Publisher's Description
Crowned 'the Weegee of hiphop' by Fab 5 Freddy, Ricky Powell has been celebrated for his street photography since the mid-Eighties. Margeaux Watson wrote the following about the exhibition that lead to this book of postcards: 'Ricky's candid snapshots of celebrities, lowlifes, local luminaries and animals offer an amusing view of New York City and the world…”There's something eternally youthful, innocent, funny and sexy about his work.' The celebrities, in this case, include Run, DMC, and Jam Master Jay, KRS-One, Kool Keith, Rakim, Slick Rick, LL Cool J, Madonna, Method Man, Frankie Crocker, Andy Warhol and Keith Haring, and Flavor Flav & Biz Markie…” although none of them has quite as much charisma as the otherwise anonymous young woman Ricky has alternately dubbed 'Blunt Freak' and 'my Mona Lisa.'
