London-based director Andrew Margetson follows Memphis-bred Lil Buck as he dances past Icons Of Modern Art: The Shchukin Collection at Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris.

"I was born in Chicago, raised in Memphis, Tennessee I didn't start dancing until I was like 11 years old. The dance style I do is a dance style that started with Memphis underground rap music, and that music, the way it was produced, gave us a certain bounce. When I was around 16 years old, I got into ballet. We made a deal with this artistic director. We would teach hip hop, and then they would teach us some ballet and that's how it happened."
