"We were in Paris and we had a day off. So I ended up with Run DMC and we were just walking around like tourists. I said 'Yo jump up over here.' I would always say that to them, and they would kinda laugh at me like 'Oh, here goes Ricky again. Here he goes with his visions…' So I just directed them where to go stand because I would always say 'You’re going to thank me one day.' So they humored me and then they got into it. They were getting into the poses and having some fun. I was actually crunching on a crusty croissant while I was snapping these flicks. I would hold the croissant with one hand and snap the flicks with my other.
I shot it with a regular little camera, but I always shot with slide film, so it always looked very professional. Run DMC used it on their greatest hits album as well. I was very fortunate. It is one of my most prized photographs in my “30 Years Of Pro Photos On The Hang Out Tip."- Ricky Powell
This RUN is signed, numbered and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Ricky Powell and 1xRUN.
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.
Born in 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.”
