Emanuel Wallace

Location: Cleveland, Ohio

Emanuel Wallace (under the pseudonym, Eva Noslen) shoots a lot more than music photos, as do the majority of the photographers on this list, and his live work contains an element of portraiture. It's up-close and at times you could mistake it for not being live at all, which isn't a bad thing. In 2011, he was nominated for an Ohio Hip Hop Award in the category of Best Photographer. We expect more accolades to come his way in the future.
