Living Proof
by David Alan Harvey

In 2005, David Alan Harvey began photographing local emcees in the Bronx River Projects, home of hip hop's pioneers. Boogie Down thugs Uptown and Ruckus, became Harvey's self-appointed guides, bringing him inside their homes, their families, and their lives. From there, Harvey went to Hollywood, gaining access to Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, and Nelly. Going global to document the regional manifestations of a culture a mere three decades in existence, Harvey also traveled from Spain, France, and Gambia to Senegal, South Korea, and Thailand. (This essay contains explicit lyrics.)
