Jamel Shabazz Albums highlights the photo albums from the archives of the iconic chronicler of New York's 1980s rap, hip-hop and Black culture, Jamel Shabazz. The influential Brooklyn-based photographer has been making portraits of New Yorkers for more than 40 years, creating an archive of cultural shifts and struggles across the city. His portraits of different communities underscore the street as a space for self-presentation, whether through fashion or pose. In every instance Shabazz aims, in his words, to represent individuals and communities with “honor and dignity.” This book―awarded the Gordon Parks Foundation/Steidl Book Prize―presents, for the first time, Shabazz’s work from the 1970s to ’90s as it exists in his archive: small prints thematically grouped and sequenced in traditional family photo albums that function as portable portfolios.
