This collection of Shabazz's photography is a must see for anyone interested in the development of "urban" culture, hip hop and swagger in Brooklyn circa the 1980's. If you need more convincing, check out the galleries on his website: http://jamelshabazz.com/js_bitd.html

You should also do yourself a solid and google "boys wearing new wave sunglasses"(especially if you're the kind of nerd who likes things related to Geordi La Forge and Next Gen).

Great collection of photographs by Jamel Shabazz from NY, documenting in the 1980s the roots of hip-hop culture. Nice introduction by Fab 5 Freddy and afterword by Shabazz, but the bulk of the book is full-page photographs (some double-page spreads) in color and B&W.

these pictures are really cute. apparently, back in the days, couples were into holding hands and wearing matching outfits and accessories. i could get into the late 80's hand holding and public cuddle, definitely. but i dunno about matching eyewear.

Recommends it for: Photographers, fashion designers, revivalists, sociologists
Great photographs. Shows some of the last non-consumerist, unconventional movements in Black fashion concerned with Black pride and empowerment. Read Hebdige's 'Subculture' to get a more textual explanation behind the pictures.

The opposite of candid, it turns out, is fascinating. All these people-tableaus. All this arm folding. And so many exquisitely choreographed page-spreads.

Another book of photos of the 70s and 80s of NYC. Fashion and style and "cool" -- lots of fun.
