Your favorite photographer's favorite photographer, Martha's honest and beautifully composed shots of Hip-Hop culture and the heart and soul of inner-cities alike are incomparable and celebrated the world over. In "Picture Story," her storied career is candidly told and you're reminded in the first half hour why although she isn't technically a "Hip-Hop photographer," she is the Queen of Hip-Hop photos. In one scene, Marty is gearing up for a late night photo/bombin' mission with the 1UP Crew that is reminisce of Rambo gearing up for all out war. Those of you who know Marty, know this is exactly how she gets down, and why she wears the crown. Saludos, Marty!
