Jamel Shabazz: Street Photographer

Charlie Ahearn’s Film Retraces a Moment in New York Style - Video 1 / / 3

As a teenage photographer in early 80s East Flatbush, Brooklyn, Jamel Shabazz set out to document the then nascent movement of hip-hop. Through the iconic style of his MCs, neighborhood kids and gang members, the unequivocal attitude of New York’s youth was recognized as the calling card of the city’s creative renaissance. Published in 2001, Shabazz’ first book Back In The Days was celebrated as an exhilarating snapshot of the times, and his visual flair has been brought to life in a new documentary by the legendary hip-hop historian and director, Charlie Ahearn.  “On the cover of Jamel’s book were two young men on 42nd Street. They were captured posing in such strong form as a kind of respectful bulwark against all the chaos that you see around them on ‘The Deuce,’” explains Ahearn, the notable filmmaker also responsible for the classic old-school movie, Wild Style. “I immediately knew that here was an original artist for our time.” [1]

Hello friends I know i’m not supposed to relly post about my designs for production (incase you were wondering, these are concept mood boards) but i’m actually sort of psyched about some ideas, even though the actors haven’t started creating yet.

I’ll leave these here, but if you want more info pm me since people from uni follow me on here and the less they ‘know’ the better SLASH we don’t want everyone to know what’s going on don’t we

Had my first go at doing Princess Leia hair. Not sure if it’s gonna cut it for a long night of drinking but I can’t find a foam hand for a Miley Cyrus:VMAs toga outfit. Anyone have tips on how to get donuts to stay in slippery hair? It’s also pretty fine but I’m hoping getting a friend to help out with my hair on Wednesday will mean that my hair gets spread evenly around both buns

"Elizabeth is spectacular to work with. She basically let me do whatever I wanted to, but at some point I’d say, ‘What do you think about if we did this?’ and she’d go ‘Ehhhh’, or we’d go ‘Oh yeah! How about if we do this? We could do this! And we won’t put any glitter on this one, but let’s use those crazy eyelashes, I have these really amazing eyelashes!’" - Ve Neill
