The acknowledged American street photographer Ricky Powell, a.k.a. the fourth Beastie Boy, visits Amsterdam to open a photo exhibition at designer fashion store SPRMRKT, to launch a vegan friendly sneaker in collaboration with PONY and to speak at an informal presentation at Pakhuis de Zwijger with a meet & greet afterwards.
The Powell sneaker for PONY – the Vintage Slamdunk – is made of coated canvas. PONY stands for Product of New York, and so is Ricky Powell (1961). He is known for his photographs of the legendary hip-hop band Beastie Boys. During the exhibition opening and sneaker launch he’s signing purchased work. Lucky early birds receive a autographed art print of the master.
Later you can meet Powell again at Pakhuis de Zwijger where he explains the story behind his photos.
