1 Week with 1UP at Revolver Upstairs

Having previously supported Martha Coopers book “Hip Hop Files: Photographs 1979-1984” in 2004, this year Carhartt WIP returns to present "One Week with 1UP". "One Week with 1UP" is a unique photography and art project created by the legendary New York photographer Martha Cooper, the Berlin-based photographer Ninja K, and the world-famous Berlin graffiti crew 1UP (One United Power). The book explores a unique bond between the renowned documentary photographer – who, since the 1970s, has captured some of the most enduring images of the graffiti and hip-hop scenes – and one of world's largest, most fearless modern-day graffiti crews.

To support the release of the book, the 1UP Crew brought Martha Cooper and Ninja Ks "One Week with 1UP" to Melbourne as part of their worldwide tour. Having a pop-up exhibition, sold-out screening session and on the night flash tattooing at Revolver Upstairs.

Below we have images from the night and some of the 1UP crew visited our Melbourne store to give us a new window. Exclusive merch is available in limited quantities in our Melbourne store along with limited signed copies of the book.
