Ilja Meefout's first photography book 1,2 1,2 – Portraits of Hip Hop presents an impressive overview of his extensive oeuvre. The book shows Meefout's process as a photographer, but at the same time it is also an ode to Hip Hop; tells from his own perspective and in the context of the environment in which Meefout grew up with all its metropolitan and social challenges. This context contributes to Meefout's visual language: from local to international stars who pose as if they were acquaintances of his, very familiar and natural, and therefore universal.
Ilja Meefout has photographed the greatest Hip Hop artists in the world.
