INSPIRATION: Jamel Shabazz

‘Jamel Shabazz is a legendary street photographer from New York, who was born in 1960 and came to be one of the most influential and important photographers of the late 20th century. He is most famous for his photos of Brooklyn’s dynamic street life, from the 1980s until now. At the age of fifteen, he got his first camera, a 110 Kodak Instamatic, and he began to photograph his friends and family. A couple of years later, he bought a Canon AE-1 and started his 35-year journey documenting various cultures and people. His pictures include prostitutes, criminals, pimps, young rappers, school girls, and how the rough Brooklyn life had influenced them.’

What can we gain from looking at a photo? So much. We can allow ourselves to be inspired, to be taken away. Who knows where you’ll end up? Maybe you’ll get on a plane tonight and fly to another country, maybe you’ll help someone in need, maybe you’ll discover the beauty of nature, maybe you’ll put up a wall and not think anything at all. There is so much power in the way things are placed together, even in a photograph as simple as this. It can reach people in multiple and diverse ways, perhaps not by coincidence, but by a God who wants you to find His love in inspiration.
