Manchester Marauders portrays the Manchester Hip Hop scene through Air Adam

Manchester Marauders is an upcoming exhibition that portrays the Manchester Hip Hop scene through the eyes of photographer Air Adam.

Inspired by the seminal 'Midnight Marauders' album by A Tribe Called Quest, 49 respected artists from the Manchester scene are included in the exhibition centrepiece. In addition to the main piece, the show will feature a wide selection of photos of Manchester Hip Hop artists, from veterans to the new school.

The opening night will have a short film on the project by In The Loop residents Bedos (NouGold) and Agent J (Groovement), as well as an MC/DJ "cypher" featuring artists from the centrepiece performing live.

Air Adam is a Leeds-born, Manchester-based photographer who has been active in the Manchester Hip Hop scene as a DJ, podcaster, and photographer since 1999. He is a regular contributor to Example Magazine and his work can also be found on Facebook and
