40 years with Jamel Shabazz

Jamel Shabazz has visually represented urban New York for the last 40 years. Born and raised in 1960s Brooklyn during the civil rights movement and the Vietnam War, his surroundings both intimately and nationally exposed him to incredibly violent images that would instil him with an urge to present a different perspective. His work is testament to the beauty that can be found in the places considered least likely to provide it. Here´s Shabbazz´ portfolio!
