The Story Behind Ricky Powell's Iconic 1993 Eazy-E Flicks

1xRUN: Tell us a little bit about this piece, anything immediate you would like us to highlight between you me and the lamp post?
Ricky Powell: I was going to interview Eazy-E at the Hilton Hotel on 51st and 6th for Seconds magazine. We were going to talk about a single he was putting out in 1993. He answered the door with a huge blunt and said "For you Ricky Powell!" I was like wow, this is going to be a fun interview. Basically I just went up to interview him and I brought my Minolta auto-jammy camera, my Pentax 1000 with this fish-eye lens and my camcorder video camera, just in case I could get an interview or film him for "Rappin' with The Rickster" the public access show I was doing at the time. He was very relaxed and let me photograph him while he was rolling more blunts and what not.

"Eazy-E is a unique legend with a unique voice and style. This photo shows stuff that he was into...and weed. Since he was from the West Coast and I'm from the East Coast it was a interesting blend, especially because of my history/lineage of photographing rap stars from the East Coast.

I was going to interview Eazy-E at the Hilton Hotel on 51st and 6th for Seconds magazine. We were going to talk about a single he was putting out in 1993.

He answered the door with a huge blunt and said 'For you Ricky Powell!' I was like wow, this is going to be a fun interview. Basically I just went up to interview him and I brought my Minolta auto-jammy camera, my Pentax 1000 with this fish-eye lens and my camcorder video camera. He was very relaxed and let me photograph him while he was rolling more blunts and what not." - 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.”
