New York native Joe Conzo Jr. is known as “The Man Who Took Hip Hop's Baby Pictures.” Born and raised in the Bronx, Joe Conzo Jr. acquired a passion for photography as a young boy attending the Agnes Russell School on the campus of Columbia University. He continued his formal artistic education at the School of Visual Arts (NYC). He has photographed all the greats of Hip Hop, and his images appear in the seminal book, Born in the Bronx: A Visual Record of the Early Days of Hip Hop. His entire collection will reside in the permanent Hip Hop archive at Cornell University. Joe continues to lecture, meet with young people, exhibit his work, and participate in international events.
