Movement - Yoshi Omori
Between 1984 and 1989, on the vacant lot of Stalingrad, hip-hop cut its teeth: Jay One, Bando and Ash on the graffiti, Dee Nasty on the turntables. In the evening, everyone meets at the Globo, where Afrika Bambaataa and Public Enemy observe the debuts of Claude MC, Joey Starr and Stomy Bugsy. The young Japanese Yoshi Omori photographed the dancers, the MCs, the poses of lascars, but above all the warm and nervous atmosphere of what everyone then called the Movement. These unpublished images are now compiled in a book wanted by Jay One and Marc Boudet, published in the year of the 30th anniversary of hip-hop in France.
