Born in the Bronx

A Visual Record of the Early Days of Hip Hop

Rizzoli

New York, 2007

born in 1963 in New York's Bronx, he is considered the first hip hop photographer. His pictures are devoted to the four main elements of hip-hop culture: MC-ing, DJ-ing, graffiti and breakdancing. In 2007 Conzo published his first book under the title »Born in the Bronx: A Visual Record of the Early Days of Hip Hop«, which shows how hip hop developed from its beginnings into studio and mainstream music.
