Reviews

For Shabazz, style is more than self-expression; it is an act of resistance, a refusal to be invisible, erased, or diminished. The strength of that vision can be traced throughout his new book, Sights in the City: New York Street Photographs.--Miss Rosen "Vogue "
Shabazz has perfected capturing the everyday moments at just the right moment. Moments so specific and singular, they become universal.--Jamie Maleszka "Mass Appeal "
His photographs are usually the result of consent, not a furtive snapshot--so people comport themselves with a bright, willful crispness, rising to the aesthetic occasion ... In Shabazz's work, exuberance dominates.--Tobi Haslett "The New York Review of Books Daily "
