What do you think viewers will take away from this documentary?
You don’t have to dress it up, you know, like a paparazzi. Jamel doesn’t have shots of stars or stars on the rise. I’m not knocking it. I do it myself. I’m not against taking a picture of someone I consider great, but that’s not what Jamel is doing. Jamel is into how it looks. And the posing is expressing something that goes very deep in hip hop culture, which is the way people represent themselves. But I don’t have any doubt that Jamel didn’t just go up to these guys and snap this picture. He spent a lot of time talking to these guys and building up this geometric form here. I mean this is Jamel creating a canvas. This is art.
