About the Author
New York-based Jamel Shabazz (born 1960) is a documentary, fashion and street photographer. Since first picking up the camera nearly 40 years ago he has authored seven monographs (including the popular volume Back in the Days) and exhibited worldwide; his work is in the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum, The Smithsonian and the Bronx Museum of the Arts.
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 "
