Jamel Shabazz: Albums

Jamel Shabazz: Albums is a newly released book that features the celebrated photographer’s albums from the 1970s through the 1990s. The book exhibits much of the previously unseen work as it exists in Shabazz’s own archives.


Jamel Shabazz: Albums is co-published with Steidl and The Gordon Parks Foundation. The photographer was the 2022 recipient of the Gordon Parks Foundation / Steidl Book Prize. The book offers an intimate look into Shabazz’s portraiture and archives alongside essays by Nelson George, Deborah Willis, Peter W. Kunhardt, JR., Michal Raz-Russo and Leslie Wilson.
