About the Author:
Photography, Music and Food are Raph s greatest passions in life. Born Rafael Rashid in
Melbourne Australia, Raph has approached each of his these interests in a very unique way.
From an early age growing up in the family restaurant Raph s exposure to the world of
hospitality was immediate and unrelenting, helping his parents wash dishes deep into the night planted the seed for a strong work ethic. It was the impetus for Raph to leave school age 16 with a need to start finding his own way in the work force.
Raph picked up a camera in his early 20 s and started documenting his circle of friends who
also happened to be very talented skateboarders. After the skate sessions had finished for the day Raph would generally find himself with a different circle of friends making beats in home studios all around Melbourne. He started to shoot pictures of the improbable set ups , and before too long started shooting photos all around the world. In 2005 Gingko Press released Behind the Beat a 168 page full color book featuring 27 producers including DJ Shadow, DJ
Premier and J Dilla. Whilst travelling America Raph became increasingly interested in Hamburgers , Tacos and Fried chicken. After a decade of working on his own recipes Raph decided to open Australia s first food truck - Beatbox kitchen. He then went on to open Taco Truck and now has a fleet of Food Trucks and 2 restaurants in Melbourne. Raph was recognized by Melbourne Food & Wine festival and was awarded the Trailblazer award in 2013 for outstanding contributions to the
Melbourne food scene.
In 2016 the Smithsonian Natural Museum of African American History acquired one of Raph s
photographs of J Dilla to sit alongside his MPC and Moog Synthesizer in a tribute to one of the
greatests hip hop producers of all time.
Raph has exhibited his photographs and other works in Tokyo, Melbourne and Hamburg.
Continuing to photograph the home studio led Raph to amass another 30 hip hop producers for a follow up book titled Back to the Lab released in October, 2017 under his own imprint, Papi Press.
Raph currently lives in Melbourne, Australia with his wife Beci Orpin and their 2 children Tyke and Ari.
