Public Enemy’s go-to photographer Ernie Paniccioli played a crucial role in documenting the group’s ascendancy. The Brooklyn-raised photographer, who started his affiliation with hip-hop, capturing graffiti and street movement that were taking place in the late ’70s, found direct connection to the message and ideal of Public Enemy early on. Soon, he became the group’s most trusted photog, and Ernie’s long-lasting relationship with hip-hop continued to evolve throughout the years.

Recently, his extensive archive was acquired by Cornell University and Public Enemy was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Check out Ernie’s photos above and read the full story at The New York Times.
