Going back a good few weeks, I had the pleasure of catching up with the gifted photographer/documentarian/beatmaker Eric Coleman. Alongside B+ and Andrew Lojero, Coleman dedicates his talents to the formidable and innovative Mochilla team. After spending time with both Coleman and B, the link between their documentary work and their respectively deep record collections became very clear to see.
I had the privelage of documenting a wide variety of Coleman's photo work; from a post-Katrina New Orleans project, to an iconic mid 90s Wu Tang group shot (something only a handful of photographers can lay claim to) to the classic Madvillainy shots.
Coleman also has an impressive catalogue of unreleased beats. His boxes of MPC floppy disks are a sight to witness in these days of digital filesharing!
