Joe Conzo has been described as the man who took Hip-Hop’s baby pictures but his story is much richer than that. A Bronx New York native that came of age in the 1970’s he was the man capturing the birth of the Hip-Hop scene as depicted in the book ‘Born In The Bronx’. If you have seen pictures of early Hip-Hop then you have seen photos by Joe.


After a couple of tough years where he had troubles with addiction and became homeless he turned his life around training as a nurse and then becoming a medic with the New York Fire Department and even being one of the many on the ground during the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centre.
