Jessica Lehrman: Documenting the Underbelly of the NYC Hip Hop World

Jessica Lehrman is a 26-year-old Brooklyn-based documentary photographer who captures the glamor and grit of contemporary underground movements, from the underbelly of New York City’s hip hop community to protests and social revolutions.

Lehrman grew up as a young Jewish girl who spent much of her childhood living in the back of an R.V. Nowadays, some of her closest friends are also some of the biggest names in the rap industry. Her photos have been published in Rolling Stone, The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Billboard, VICE and more.
