"Big Up" by Ben Watts

Photography // Friday, July 11, 2014
Big Up is an impressive array of portraits featuring rappers, actors, boxers, dancers, skateboarders, children, and other street characters. London-born photographer Ben Watts started this collection in 1990 when he came to New York from the Sydney College of Arts. Fascinated by the faces and energy of New York’s urban youth culture, the book started as a collection of personal snapshots that continued to build over a dozen years.
