Lisa Leone's upcoming show at HVW8 Gallery documents hip-hop's moments of truth in the most intimate way possible. Leone grew up in NYC and has said about her work -- “To see a young Nas in the studio with Q-Tip, Premier and Large Professor was not only inspiring, it is ‘the decisive moment’.” Lisa has taken iconic photographs of Snoop Dogg, Lauryn Hill, Mary J. Blige, Wyclef Jean, Run DMC, Nas, A Tribe Called Quest, Rosie Perez, the Roots, Queen Latifah and many others. 

The show opens May 11, 2012 at HVW8 Gallery in Los Angeles (661 N. Spaulding Ave).
