Posing is the art of self-expression. It comprises appearance, fashion, accessories and the art of arranging the body or face in a good pose. Cause We Got Style! is a collection of early European hip hop pose photos.

Information about the new American youth culture was still hard to come by, and the youths of Europe had to work out their own ways. Together with graffiti, breakdance, rapping and djing, clothes and attitude were the means of expression. You had to be innovative and use what was available, add details and make your own accessories in orderto stand out and look fresh!

Most of the photos in Cause We Got Style! are snapshots taken by kids on their way to a concert, next to a freshly painted graffiti piece, in the street or in the bedroom. The result is as charming as it is revealing. This is a glimpse into a very private photo album, dusted off after years of lying around in the closet.

Cause We Got Style! shows photos of unknown teenagers as well as now well-known artists like Goldie, Mode 2, Can 2 and Bando. It contains texts by Akim “Zebster” Walta, D.D.Fresh, Queen Hanifa, Mr Puppet and Dan Tikaret among others.

An astonishing document of the early days of European hip hop!
