Ignacio Soltero is a Brooklyn based, born and raised, photographer. He always had an interest in photography since learning of the process at eleven years old at day camp. Two years later, he learned how to operate a manual film camera and develop B&W film in a dark room in Junior HS. At that time, he mostly photographed school events, skateboarding & his bmx biking friends on the weekends. The passion for photography was short lived due to the lack of funds to buy a camera. A few years later, his interest in photography got sparked again while studying Advertising Design in college. He then began to document his mountain bike adventures throughout Brooklyn. With those photos, he then formed a website with friends documenting other mountain bikers in NYC. Since then, he has used his skills from shooting action sports photography and applied them to shooting DJs, dancers and other events.
I had a great night seeing some of my family, friends, aliens & favorite
hiphop acts like the Cold Crush Brothers who did not miss a beat, lyric or dance move
They talked about catching the Cold Crush Ghost… I believed em after that performance.
Melle Mel gave them a spectular show as Hiphops General in his sharp attire…
Night was hosted by the legendary and strong Queen Ms. Roxanne Shante
and giving prizes to the winners of random challenges like
