The Broadened Exposure Collection

Broadened Exposure presents intimate moments in music history, captured through the lens of T. Eric Monroe. The visual stories expressed in this collection represent a fresh and unseen perspective of cultural icons from the 90’s Hiphop Community, at a time before the Internet, social media, and digital photography. This historic vault of iconic photos is being shared with the public after being hidden decades, offering a rare glimpse into the unseen moments of a musical revolution. 

Get By

MOS DEF & TALIB KWELI

THE BRONX, NYC

1998

“It was the Rocksteady Anniversary Performance in the Bronx. I was walking behind the stage to get a better vantage point and noticed Mos Def (Yasiin Bey). We greeted. I used to see him every so often, but at that point it had been three years since we last intersected.

I used to see him every so often while De La was working on Stakes is High, but at that point it had been three years since we last intersected.


Mos Def gestured that they were about to go on stage. I motioned my hands, asking to take one photo of him and Talib; they looked at each other and agreed. I stepped back, focused my Yashica Mat (124 G) camera, took one shot and thanked them as they headed for the stage.”
