Just as Andy Warhol: Red Books defined a generation of artists, Big Shots offers a collection of photos that captures the energy of the world of hip-hop and the greater worlds of music and fashion alike. Started as snaps of friends and visitors, this unprecedented volume shot by Phillip Leeds, former tour manager of Kelis and N.E.R.D., is a compilation of previously unpublished work documenting some of the biggest names in hip-hop and fashion. His collection of Polaroid portraits has effectively grown to capture an important moment in music and fashion. With more than 250 Polaroids of artists and figures including Mos Def, Jay Z, Tyler the Creator, Quest-love, and Rita Ora, Big Shots gives readers a unique and oftentimes impromptu look into an era of music and fashion shared through the ever-nostalgic format of the Polaroid.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The fashion world, of course, loves nothing more than something it can't get its hands on. Cue the recent books that elevate the Polaroid to art object, with celebrities as their subject. "I feel like, right now, it's almost like the last hurrah," said Phillip Leeds, a photographer whose book of star-studded Polaroids, 'Big Shots, ' will be released in March by Rizzoli ($24.95, 304 pp.), with Rita Ora on the cover and entertainers, including Pharrell Williams, who wrote the introduction, inside."
