This event has ended.

We are proud to announce the opening of celebrated photographer Jamel Shabazz’s newest series SIGHTS IN THE CITY at the United Photo Industries Gallery.

During the summer of 1980, under the direction of his photographer father, Jamel Shabazz armed himself with a Canon AE1 SLR camera and began to photograph the landscape of his native New York City. Photographing in the streets put Shabazz right in the heart of all of the action; he carried his camera everywhere he went, from Harlem to Times Square, the Lower East Side to downtown Brooklyn, always set and at the ready. Like a fisherman seeking a fruitful catch, Shabazz ventured into locations full of life and uncertainty in hopes of capturing a unique moment. Consisting of color and black-and-white photographs taken between 1980 and 2016, many of which have never been published, Sights in the City is the testament of Shabazz’s visual journey.
