PHOTO // ATLANTA, GA
Diwang Valdez is one-third of the Atlanta-based director trio Motion Family, but his body of work as a photographer speaks for itself. Peep the photo credit on images of many of today's top hip hop artists and you'll likely find Valdez's handiwork.
For over a decade, Diwang earned a reputation for capturing stirring images of hip hop's most fascinating personalities. He has photographed some of the most iconic shots of the industry’s brightest stars and well-known album covers including Fetty Wap, Rae Sremmurd and Mike Will, as well as for record labels Interscope, Def Jam, Atlantic Records, and Warner Music Group.
But Diwang is far from a one-trick pony. His body of work includes collaborations with corporate clients including Nike, the FDA, Finish Line, Casio, Soundcloud and Ford. Editorially, his photos have appeared in publications such as The New York Times, Inc, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, Billboard, Paper Magazine, and XXL.
