About the Author


Janette Beckman began her career at the dawn of punk rock in London, working for titles like The Face & Melody Maker. She shot bands from The Clash to Boy George as well as documenting the rebellious youth culture fans and emblematic moments for iconoclasts like Blondie and the Police. Relocating to New York in 1983, Beckman was immediately drawn to the burgeoning hip-hop scene where she photographed trailblazers of the movement like Salt-N-Pepa, Run DMC, Grand Master Flash, Slick Rick, and LL Cool J. Fast forward to 2021, Beckman's dedication to the rebellious still rings true today. Whether it's photographing the moving BLM protests in 2020, or celebrating the subversive through collaborations with brands like Levi's, Dior, and Gucci, Beckman has been and always will be an artist of her times.
