This is Jamel Shabazz, one of the illest photographers to hold a camera. He’s a former corrections officer and a portrait photographer who captured so many aspects of NYC, hip hop, and Black and Brown culture in the 80s. And he’s still shooting today. I’ve known about him since I saw his books
Doesn’t matter what genre you work in, check out Jamel’s work. Check out his books for free from your local library, unplug, and get into it. Peep some more below.
Here’s a recent interview he did w/ OG Black Thought.
