I’ve been trying to find an image of Adam Yauch (AKA MCA) ever since I heard he’d died. I was a big fan of the Beasites and I’m going to miss their music. Here he is rocking a Hasselblad.
Photo is by the awesome Danny Clinch. Check out his work, It’s great.
He had this to say about the photo (via Spinner).
Los Angeles, 1998: I was in L.A., and the Beastie Boys were playing there, and I called to ask if I could go to the show. And their manager said, “Yeah — as a matter of fact, could you spend a little time with them before the show and maybe shoot some pictures?” And I shoot with a lot of different cameras, so I have a whole pile of cameras sitting behind me. So [Adam] Yauch said, “Lemme see that Hasselblad.” I thought he was just gonna check it out, and he turned it on me. I should run the one he took of me and this one.
