Since the 1990s, B+ has captured hip-hop luminaries like J Dilla, Mos Def, and Madlib in intimate moments.

His photos have also been used as album artwork by artists including DJ Shadow – on what is perhaps his most recognised cover shot, for Entroducing – Q-Tip, RZA, and Jurrassic 5.

Hosted by Family Affair, FREAKS OF THE INDUSTRY: Bay Area Hip-Hop Shot by B+, presents his work as “a visual mixtape of various artists repping the Bay outside the mainstream.”

FREAKS OF THE INDUSTRY: Bay Area Hip-Hop Shot by B+ runs from 18th October to 17th November at Family Affair, 683 Haight Street, San Francisco.

The exhibition follows the release of B+ Ghost Notes: Music of the Unplayed photography book in late 2017.

Head here to RSVP for the opening reception on 18th October.
