Govinda Gallery had one of the first exhibitions of Nitin’s photographs as part of the Hip Hop Immortals exhibition we had in the spring of 2004. He photographed Barack Obama that same year.

Music’s ‘ground zero’ was in downtown Washington Saturday night, as The Wailers and Tedeschi Trucks Band were playing at the same time a block from each other, at Hamilton Live on 14th Street and at the Warner Theater on 13th Street. Such a powerful musical vibration had not aligned in such a spectacular way in […]
