CEY ADAMS X JANETTE BECKMAN

CEY ADAMS X JANETTE BECKMAN

The British-born Janette Beckman — who is now based in New York City — kicked off her career as punk rock was just starting to take shape, working for music magazines The Face and Melody Maker. In 1983, she moved to the Big Apple where she photographed hip-hop pioneers such as Run-DMC, Slick Rick, Salt-N-Pepa, Grandmaster Flash and LL Cool J. Cey Adams, a native New Yorker, emerged from the graffiti scene to exhibit alongside fellow artists Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring. He appeared in the historic 1982 PBS documentary “Style Wars” and established Def Jam Recordings’ in-house visual design firm, Drawing Board.
