You might not know the name Ricky Powell, but you most certainly know his work. His photographs of New York City and its music and its culture are totally iconic, from his shots of hip hop artists, most notably he was often referred to behind the scenes as ‘The 4th Beastie Boy’ to club snaps of the biggest supermodels, his portfolio is a cornucopia of glam, neon and life.

R.I.P. Sir.
