Renowned Photographer Opens "True Hip-Hop" Exhibit in Miami

AE District, located in Miami's Design District, presents "True Hip-Hop," a fine art photography collection 12 years in the making, by nationally recognized photographer Mike Schreiber, at 7 pm on Wednesday, November 10.

The exhibition, curated by Maria Arellano, provides a behind-the-scenes look into the lives of hip-hop musicians, capturing them in a raw light. Schreiber’s photos convey the essence of cultural life and perspective, resulting in an unmatched aesthetic viewpoint that is refined yet
undeniably honest in its organic and gritty tone."The photographs evoke the deep rooted feelings of the culture of hip-hop, not reflective of its own glossy desire but a representation of their true grit," said actor Craig "mums" Grant.

Schreiber is a self-taught photographer whose work has graced
the pages of Esquire, Rolling Stone and New York Magazine. His talent has also been featured in high-profile ad campaigns for Mountain Dew, AND-1, City Year and the Partnership for a Drug-Free America. His clients include Atlantic, Epic, Sony and Universal Records. Schreiber's work is not limited to entertainment; among his other subjects are prisoners in the Louisiana State Penitentiary, also known as Angola, people of Cuba and a dog park series.

The opening reception at AE District, located at 3852 North Miami Avenue, will be hosted by Talib Kweli with music by Keen One + Chris Culture. The exhibition will be open to the public from November 10 to November 26.
