This summer, the Getty Images Gallery presents new exhibition Beat Positive. Showcasing iconic images from British photographers Janette Beckman and David Corio, as well as never before seen material from the Michael Ochs, Right On! And Redferns archives, it will bring to life the early days of hip hop culture in New York. Visitors will be able to step back in time to 1973, when DJ Kool Herc launched the now globally successful genre, and step into the world of Run-DMC, Dougie Fresh, Salt-n-Pepa, MC Shan, Queen Latifah and LL Cool J. Images on display will be available to buy as prints.
