About The Work
About The Artist

This RUN comes ready to hang.

"I took this shot in 1988 at the G-Spot, which stood for the Grasshoff’s house. The Beasties had rented this house in Laurel Canyon to record Paul’s Boutique. By this time they were flying me out, and as they were recording everybody wanted to come out and chill. Basically we needed a little Ricky Powell-ism out there. So I flew in from New York and we were just hanging out at the pool, and I went into Adrock’s room and his bed was by this window that looked into the middle of the pool. So I kneeled on the bed and shot a roll of them swimming around in front of the window.  I remember Adrock’s bedroom was built into this big glass dirt hill, it something that you’d see in a James Bond movie. It was like an underground bedroom liar, slayer maximus style. So I shot a roll or two and they later selected one of the photos on the roll to be the photo inside sleeve of Paul’s Boutique.” - Ricky Powell

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Born and raised in New York City, Ricky Powell is a legendary photographer who specializes in the environmental portrait. He graduated with an AA in Liberal Arts from LaGuardia Community College and a B.S. in Physical Education from Hunter College. Though Powell initially rose to fame because of his relationship with the Beastie Boys, he is well-known for his intimate photographs that have been featured in The New York Times, The New York Post, The Daily News, The Village Voice, TIME, Newsweek, VIBE, The Source, Rolling Stone, and more.

Documenting NYC Street since 1961, Powell’s photographs focus on the organic New Yorker. His photographs simultaneously convey intimacy and detachment, as they provide a unique lens through which the viewer can analyze the mundane. Powell considers the relationship between the photographer and the photograph to be “a chemical connection of some sort”. The connection between Powell and his camera is only further stimulated by Greenwich Village, where he currently resides. As the intrinsic qualities of the photograph have changed since Powell began capturing his moments, so have the subjects; he is now more likely to “photograph strangers in his Greenwich Village neighborhood than multi-platinum hip-hop acts and Downtown art stars.”
