Danny Hastings

Danny Hastings is the legendary New York City Photographer behind several classic Hip Hop album covers. Hastings’ love for photography started in the early ’90s and lead him to shoot over 150 album covers and direct more than 50 music videos. He has been listed in Complex Magazine as one of the 15 rap photographers every rap fan should know. His most notable work includes "Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers", Big Pun’s "Capital Punishment", NAS’ "I Am...", and Eminem’s "Slim Shady" special edition cover just to name a few. Hastings was part of the last wave of traditional analog photographers. He developed all his film and printed all his negatives. His work in the 90s was embraced by every signed Hip Hop artist dropping music at the time. Today Hastings has over 40,000 negatives and is ready to open a treasure chest that would be replete with never before seen images and commentaries behind Hip-Hop's most prominent records.
