Arts & Culture, In-Residence, Music

Geo credit Canh SoloThe premise behind Geo’s collaborative photography project Rappers W/ Cameras is inspiringly simple: “We are not photographers. We are rappers. With cameras.” And the backstory is just as cool: A while back, Geo began working with fellow Seattle rapper Thig Natural (The Physics)—initially just on a handful of songs, until they discovered a mutual interest in photography, particularly analog film cameras. Before long, they started hosting Rappers W/ Cameras parties at their studio to showcase their work to friends and to show music videos in progress. After a few parties, they published the first of their photo zines (also titled Rappers W/ Cameras). And now, on a larger scale (and stage), this “interactive multimedia fiesta” features an unveiling of photos from their upcoming zine, themed around personalities in the Seattle hip-hop scene; a live discussion with the two rappers; a sneak peek at music works-in-progress; music spun by DJ Daps1; and a portrait room. Presented by Town Hall as part of its Artist/Scholar in Residence series. Town Hall’s Residence program is funded, in part, by The Wallace Foundation and the Washington State Arts Commission. Media sponsorship provided by The Stranger’s A&P.
Admission is free, but reservations are required,  at www.townhallseattle.org or 888/377-4510 and at the door beginning at 6:30 pm. Town Hall members receive priority seating. Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue.
