In 1986, Ricky Powell ditched his job and went on tour with the Beastie Boys on Run-DMC’s “Raising Hell tour” and the photos he took became a part of hip hop history.
“I believe in being yourself, not following or imitating trends.”
Ricky’s array of work as a street photographer, writer and hip hop visual historian is inspiring but his “be yourself” belief and attitude is above all what makes him a truly unique individual.
Being a product of New York himself, it was just a matter of time that Ricky would hook up with PONY. With his originality, positive attitude and genuine New York grit, we are indeed thrilled to have him onboard as a collaborator and brand ambassador.
