Jamel Shabazz is a street photographer that captured the early days of hip-hop and Spray Can Art or what came to be known as (Graf)fiti. His incredible photos are held as evidence of the early days of hip-hop culture. His life and work are a testament to the phrase, “something from nothing.” Recently Shabazz became the subject of the recent documentary, Jamel Shabazz The Street Photographer, directed by Charlie Ahearn, the man behind the hip-hop classic movie, Wild Style.
Jamel Shabazz The Street Photographer is playing in select theaters only. If it’s not playing in a theater near you, tell your theater to get it.
