In February, in celebration of Black History Month (USA), we were delighted to be joined by photojournalist & cultural spokesperson, Tee Max. Tee Max started taking pictures through his love of Hip Hop in the 90’s; documenting many of the era's most celebrated and influential musical figures including, Prince, Nas, Outkast, Destiny’s Child and Erykah Badu, as well as some of the decades most important cultural moments and events. After ten years looking through the lens, Tee put down the camera to step in front of the it! He co-hosted TV and radio shows, provided cultural guidance on factual TV programmes for the BBC & went into music management, before stepping away from media completely in 2004. Tee shared some incredible work, & his advice for navigating the industry, whilst finding your own voice within it. These images were taken by our volunteer, Charles Henri Mensah.
