Tiffany Brown is the self-taught photographer and creative force behind Just Rock photography.
Through her lens, she is documenting moments in the lives of Hip Hop artists at close range. You may have heard of a few of them--Dave East, Nipsey Hussle, Problem, Kendrick Lamar, Ty Dolla $ign, G Perico, D Smoke and so many more. Her roster is long, but the California native is admittedly highly selective about her subjects and there is a reason for that.
In her words:
"I don't shoot what I can't connect with." From calls to action for racial unity, to empowering communities to build long-term wealth through ownership, the message of Black Power resounds within each of her favorite muses. They share a tie that is woven into the Black experience. "Photography is my medium to paint my pictures. I write my stories through my photographs."
Each image brings to light the humanness of her subjects; their openness, the quiet power that gets transmitted in each moment. Whether they are captured in the studio, at home, or in a moment of quiet innovation, the story in each image is screaming without making a sound. You just have to know how to listen.
