GlobalGrind caught up with photographer Mike Schreiber a few days before the opening exhibition of portraits from his "True Hip-Hop" book, at MBP Gallery in Brooklyn, New York. The exhibition is part of the DUMBO art hood's annual First Thursday Art Walk.
Schreiber is a New York City-based photographer who lives in NYC's East Village, studied anthropology at university and has been a fixture in the hip-hop community for close to 15 years, photographing athletes and some of the genre's most luminous stars.
Biggie, Biz Markie, Mos Def, Emenem and Fat Joe are just five of a galaxy of artists the photographer has shot for XXL, RollingStone, Vibe, Spin and others.
We spoke to Schreiber today, his birthday, via email.
