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]

"Em 1900, as lentes de Mucha e de Nadar captavam novas corepgrafias e gestualidades no corpo cambiante da modernidade. A nudez adquire grande visibilidade. Livre do incômodo das vestes, as pessoas podiam apresentar-se como, de fato, eram. No seu ateliê, em Paris, Alphonse Mucha, o grande gráfico da art nouveau, retrata corpos nus, fazendo dialogar fotografia, pintura e escultura, elementos da cultura profana e sagrada, tradição e modernidade. Em 1900, o artista mostrava movimentos de dança nos corpos desnudos das mulheres, tendo ao fundo algumas pinturas art nouveau do próprio artista. Contrastando com a dinâmica desses corpos em primeiro plano, o Cristo crucificado destacava-se ao fundo." (Monica Pimenta Veloso. "Escritas de si e do tempo: a dança como metáfora", in Corpo: identidades, memórias e subjetividades)
