KATSU BY ARI MARCOPOLOUS
Ari Marcopolous is one of the most prolific documentarians of gritty subcultures. For over 40 years, the Dutch photographer who famously shoots in film has captured culture makers from the edges of society such as skateboarders, musicians, artists and countless famous names such as Jay Z, who used Marcopolous’ imaged for his iconic Magna Carta album. Marcopolous’ photography and films are so ubiquitous that they have been found in editorials for Purple, Dazed and Confused and W Magazines; campaigns for Adidas and Supreme, and showcased at the Whitney Biennial.
As Dashwood’s 4th collaboration with photographer Ari Marcopolous, this book 6-23 '13 N6 Street Brooklyn, captures graffiti artist KATSU’s takeover of a vacant lot in Williamsburg in 2013.
