Journalist, author, and producer Vikki Tobak and music historian, DJ, and producer Adrian Loving lead a conversation with photographer photographer Delphine Fawundu from Tobak’s celebrated book Contact High: A Visual History of Hip-Hop (2018). The program includes a screening of a documentary short film featuring a selection of Contact High’s photographers at work.

Contact High examines the fascinating world of hip-hop through the lens of the photographers who shaped the iconic album covers, T-shirts, and posters beloved by fans around the world. Featuring rare outtakes alongside interviews and essays from industry legends, readers embark on a chronological journey from old-school to alternative hip-hop and from analog to digital photography.
