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.
