Galerie Bene Taschen, Cologne, will be hosting New York photographer Jamel Shabazz’s exhibition titled “City Metro,” from December 8, 2018, through February 2, 2019.
About 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.
Black and white or color, portrait or landscape, not real constraints during this stroll thru Paris Photos but heart-throbs and emotions in front of photographs that impose themselves, Gordon Parks, Dave Heath, Robert Frank , exchanges with gallerists and the discovery of the worlds of Bruce Wrighton and Jamel Shabazz and the meeting of artists Laura Henno and Adrien Boyer. – Florence Bachelot
