"Snapping hiphop, rap, soul, R'n'B, blues, jazz artists on Polaroid, is not as easy as you might think... I am not a journalist, a professional photographer nor am I a groupie.
The thing is, Polaroid does not like movement, so the artists have to pose and that is the tricky part.
This book explains how I succeed or fail in my ultimate hunt for that one polaroid while facing hardcore fans, managements, bodyguards, heavy security and protective entourage." Elisabeth OuniIn 2009 Elisabeth Ouni, who is passionate about urban music, hiphop, rap and the mindset that comes along with it, decided to follow her dream: to make a Polaroid portrait of all the big and emerging stars of this scene.
Ouni lives in Ostend and has Tunisian roots. She embraces her passion fearlessly and started a quest that takes her places.
Fans of Kendric Lamar, Jamie Woon, Jay-Z, D'Angelo, Pusha T, Pharrell Williams, The Roots and so on, can only dream about, being in the same room as the artist, for a Polaroid picture and an exclusive conversation. Her first feature was Pharrell Williams, straight to the core of where it all started: the American hiphop scene.
Ten years and an international renowned blog and website later it is time for a book and travelling exhibition in Berlin, Paris and New York.
