The Eye of Photography Interviews Jamel Shabazz

“I am really excited about my solo exhibition at the Bronx Museum of the Arts, titled Eyes on the Street, curated by Antonio Sergio Bessa and opening on April 6. This exhibit will focus entirely on my New York street photographs, from 1980 to 2020, and many of the photographs in this show have never been seen before. I am also looking forward to the re-release of my book A Time Before Crack, published by Powerhouse Books. This revised edition includes texts from a number of writers who shed light on the impact that the crack epidemic had and even some personal accounts. It will also include a large number of never-before-published photographs and is due out in the coming months.”
