Date of Lecture: 2007-03-29
Jamel Shabazz was born in 1960 in Brooklyn, New York. He picked up his first camera at 15 and has been actively documenting urban life for more than thirty years. Shabazz’s photographs in Back in the Days (2001) celebrate the style and social life of early hip-hop culture of the 1980s and provide an invaluable document of that time. He has also published The Last Sunday in June (2003) and A Time Before Crack (2005). All three monographs are published by Powerhouse Books.
