Opening on December 8, the new exhibition “City Metro” by New York photographer Jamel Shabazz will be unveiled via Galerie Bene Taschen in Cologne, Germany. Focusing on the culture found on the New York Metro, some 30 works, created since the early 1980s, show a different side of the “Big Apple” beyond the prestigious avenues and dazzling Broadway. In the spirit of street photography, Shabazz’s works document passengers on the popular New York transit system, capturing their fashion, moods, and traveling companions.
reminiscent of contemporary selfie culture Shabazz’s documentation of 1980s youth, feel timeless, confident and Authentic.
Note: The Exhibit will run as of the 8 December 2018 – 2 February 2019 @ Galerie Bene Taschen, Moltkestraße 81, 50674 Cologne
