Local artist Chi Modu has a new book out and will be at Leica Store New York Soho 460 w. Broadway NYC, TONIGHT from 6-8 pm.
Tupac Shakur | UNCATEGORIZED is a compilation of candid photos of Tupac Shakur taken by legendary documentary photographer Chi Modu. The photos span the period from Modu’s first meeting with Tupac in 1994 in Atlanta up until 6 months before Tupac’s death in September 1996, when he was shot in a drive-by in Las Vegas after a leaving a Mike Tyson boxing match.
Unlike many photography books with slick, posed images from recording sessions and performances, this book shows the human, vulnerable side of this superstar. Because he saw Modu as a friend and fellow black man, Tupac let his guard down, allowing Modu to capture the real human behind the celebrity.
