Photographer Vivian Hertz took over our Instagram last week with these amazing pictures:

Last week we hosted our first Instagram take over. Every day of the week Brussels photographer Vivian Hertz provided us with a great look into his picture archive.

We first got to know Vivian Hertz when he showed up at a Chase editorial meeting in Brussels. At these meetings we mostly welcome young starting writers, photographers and videomakers. It quickly became clear Vivian wasn’t like that. 

This guy started taking pictures of his skateboarding friends in Brussels during the end of the 80’s and quickly found his way into the Brussels graffiti and hip hop scene. By now he’s working as freelance photographer but keeps on focussing on photographing street subcultures in Europe and the USA. 

His picture archive includes historical pictures of legendary graffiti writers, an inside look into Miami gang culture, Brussels’ strip bars, athletes and much more. Recently he did shoots with Damso & Coely.

This week Daniil Lavrovski wil take over our account. Go have a look here

But first an overview of Vivian's updates. Be sure to click through te pictures as these are albums. 
 

 

 

 

 

#instagramtakeover by @vivianbrussels for the week... Now lets go to the Big City in Harlem and the Bronx to meet history with some of the childrens of the ghetto who make it happen on the subway in the early 70's. Here I met Lava 1&2 (the boss of the Black Spades gang at a time) Mico and the Latin Kings and Slave one from the Fabulous 5. And the transition to the 80's w the one and only Duster UA and a part of the COD crew who hit it hard until the last day of 1989 (Here Wen, Wips & Bel). Now feel the atmosphere in the places they commit their art crimes who give this city a part of her famous energy and creativity... . .Visit with the Kings under the heat of summer 2015... . . . #graffitihistory #ny #graffitikings #graffitiroots #yardromance #harlem #thebronx #lava1and2#slaveone #mico #dusterua #cleanordirty #codcrew #layup #newyork #documentoryphotography @wencod #dyard #grandconcourseyard #4yard #subwayart #legends #ghostyard #blackspades #unitedartists #fabulous5 @wipsone @belcod #westchester

#instagramtakeover by @vivianbrussels last day... Now we go into the suburbs of Paris with 2 riders from the Dirty Riderz Crew, the parisian bikelife... I focused on 2 of the most skilled riders, MousBikelife and Kissima. They handle wheelies, 12oclock, sneaking into the trafic and stunts like anybodyelse... after one hour of shooting the cops came and start a chase, then I was left alone in the middle of nowhere... La banlieue life... The Bikelife movement spread at the end of the 90's from big cities like Baltimore, hometown of the famous 12 O'clock boys. Those kids start to ride cross motorbike in the hood, doing wheelies and stunts without helmet allover the city on weekend days... . .Swipe to see all pictures . .
