New York City based photographer Mougabé “PURP” Saint Louis has been taking us on a journey through the lens of his cameras, shooting the likes of Melo-X, Big K.R.I.T, Stalley, Smoke Dza, amongst an impressive range of our city’s young influencers & tastemakers. He captures the gritty aesthetic of street art, music & of course fashion, where he can also be seen in front of the camera as well as behind it, from his features in fashion blogs to magazines to books. PURP can be seen putting his own unique spin on what he likes to call “street chic.”
