He's been called "the Gordon Parks of Hip-Hop," and has photographed Dead Prez, Goodie Mob, Jermaine Dupri, P. Diddy, Wu Tang Clan, Coretta Scott King, Andrew Young, Jesse Jackson, & Cicely Tyson to name a few.

Nearly 80 years after the Harlem Renaissance, McCollum is part of the next generation of transformative artists who have begun to emerge in Atlanta -- assuming the mantle of those that came before them.

NEXT: The Documentary celebrates the talents, struggles, and triumphs of amazing Atlanta artists on the brink of stardom against the backdrop of a city on the verge of a renaissance.

The film project grew out of the NEXT -- a quarterly concert series which showcases the brightest stars in the visual, literary, musical and film arts and a movement to galvanize Atlanta's community of artists and activists in a potent force for change.

Founded in 2007 by a group of artists and activists, NEXT is unabashedly inspired by the Harlem Renaissance, a period of stunning cultural and social upheaval from 1920 to 1930 that took root in New York and then spread around the world.

Nearly 80 years later, these are the "next" generation of transformative artists who have begun to emerge in Atlanta and are assuming the mantle of those that came before them.

NEXT: The Documentary follows the rising stars of Hip Hop photographer Shannon McCollum, Jazz and roll duo Daysahead, spoken word slam champion Ayodele Heath and literary agitator Jelani Cobb. Every week, we tell a new story.

This weekly webisode series was filmed by The Horne Brothers in collaboration with Mustard Seed Communications and Renaissance Walk Condominiums (where the documentary was filmed).

Original music by Stic,man of dead prez.
