Matthew Barnes has an eye for the world of hip-hop, but finds a way to make them unexpected. There are the obligatory model shots (girl in front of a car, girl lying down), but Barnes knows how to twist the image to give it something extra.
From his smoking gun images, to one of 5 Snoop Doggs playing a card game, Matthew Barnes turns the standard hip-hop photography into something a bit grittier and more artistic. Take a look at some of his work above.
