One could argue that Eddie Otchere was at the right place at the right moment… That might partially be true but if you ask me, it takes more than a lucky twist of fate to build an entire career. Fate can play in your favour but it’s mostly when shit happens that you learn to push through and fight for what you want. After he graduated from London College of Printing, Eddie never put down his camera, literally, because when people starting swopping analog with digital Eddie kept on defending the traditional silverhalide process. It’s in the darkness of his black room that he developed the portraits of the biggest names in hip hop over the past 20 years. From Biggie to Run DMC, from Snoop Dogg to Aaliyah, Eddie was able to immortalise legends in an era where the music industry was still genuine and artists authentic.
