The Newest Book The Fashion Pack Should Own Now

Marvel at authentic portraits of big names like Andre Leon Talley and A$AP Rocky.

Photographer and music industry veteran Phillip Leeds, who cut his teeth at places like Def Jam, Star Trak and Rush, has just released a photography book that the fashion crowd is sure to go gaga over. The folks at creative agency Division has just launched ‘BIG SHOTS!’, a compilation of more than 250 previously unpublished Polariods detailing the world of hip-hop, fashion, and all the people in between from the late 1990s till now.

BIG SHOTS! by Phillip Leeds, Rizzoli New York, 2017.

Initially just snapping informal photos of his friends and visitors on a vintage Polaroid camera, Leeds, through his extensive network in the worlds of hip-hop, fashion and music, slowly grew his massive polaroid collection to include big names like Gwen Stefani, Jay Z and Rita Ora.

A long-time friend and collaborator of musician Pharrell Williams, Leeds was most recently the global brand manager for the latter’s clothing line, Billionaire Boys Club. Williams pens in the book’s foreword: “I met Phillip way back, in ’95 or ’96, and he was always the guy who would say, ‘Let’s take a picture’.”
