Art: Joris Kalma – My View (Photography)

Dutch photographer Joris Kalma travels the low lands to shoot hip hop artists live on stage and in more intimate settings. “My View” is his new book including photos of Rakim, Guilty Simpson, Pete Philly, GZA, KRS-One, Evidence, The Proov, Method Man and more.

The kid with the cam captures the energy of artists on stage, takes one-on-one portraits, shoots photos for Dutch platform House Of Hip Hop, and acts like a fly on the backstage wall. His 144-paged book “My View” offers an on point and diverse overview of his work so far. Knowing he’s only in his early 20s, we hope to see much more of his photography in the (near) future.
