Ghostnotes is hiphop photographer B+'s mid-career retrospective, featuring over 200 images of hiphop artists and those that influenced them. Check out a selection of images from the book
Hiphop photographer Brian Cross aka B+ is set to release a retrospective of his work to date. Called Ghostnotes, the title takes its name from the unplayed notes that exist between the beats, with the book aiming to create a “visual music, putting photos next to each other to evoke unseen images and create new histories.”
The collection pulls from Black Arts poetry, dub, Ethiopian jazz, Brazilian samba and more, and features a host of artists including J Dilla, Brian Wilson, Leon Ware, George Clinton, David Axelrod, Biggie Smalls and Madlib. It also has an introduction by Jeff Chang and two essays "B+ And The Rhythm Of Vision" by Greg Tate, and "Terra Space Division" by Dave Tompkins.
