14:00 ADE Beats Q&A – My Career In Ten Pictures
Moderator: Saul van Stapele (NL)

Ilja Meefout is the leading Hip-Hop photographer of The Netherlands. His pictures of superstars like Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent and Lil Wayne have become icons in itself and he is the go-to guy for the Dutch Hip-Hop scene, shooting artwork for its major acts. His passion for the culture shines through in his visual approach and social reporting as well, for example on the Amsterdam South-East neighborhoud he grew up in. And, lest we forget, he made the artwork for that notorious Wu-Tang Clan album. Yes, that one. Meefout will talk about his amazing career as Amsterdam based hip-hop photographer and highlight the stories behind ten of his most classic pictures.
