Finally, the show Streetlife featuring works of Jamel Shabazz its about to open in the Museum aan het Vrijthof in Maastricht!
Remember the pre-COVID days, when travelling on public transport seemed like an unremarkable act? And the enforced physical proximity of other people on a commute was nothing more than an inconvenience? Now, more than ever, there’s something especially poignant and joyful about Jamel Shabazz’s newly published collection of archival photographs, depicting New Yorkers happily occupying the shared space of the city subway.
