Here’s one of those events that you probably didn’t know about, but now that you do, you need to grab yourself a ticket and check it out.

Chi Modu is best known for his time as Director Of Photography for The Source—the definitive magazine of hip-hop culture.

His time there put him behind the lens taking pictures of little known—at the time—hip-hop icons such as Tupac Shakur, Notorious B.I.G, Mary J. Blige, L-L Cool J, and many more.

Chi Modu will be in Australia this coming October and will be hosting Uncategorized, a talk, along with a masterclass—presented by Inverse Culture—in both Melbourne and Sydney over October 5 and 6.

You can grab tickets to just the talk, just the masterclass, or both. We’d definitely be hitting up both if you get the chance.

Early bird ticket sales close Friday 24 August, so you’re going to want to get in fast.
