From the George Washington Carver Museum:
“Legendary photographer, humanitarian, and educator Jamel Shabazz will present his first career retrospective, Peace to the Queen at the Carver Museum and Cultural Center in Austin, Texas. The exhibit spans four-decades of work by the artist and features portraits of women of color that are candid, artful, and often intimate. At a moment when Black and Brown women are more visibly leading the charge around movements for racial and economic justice—Peace to the Queen, has materialized and aligned at a critical moment in American history and Jamel Shabazz’s career. Brooklyn native, Jamel Shabazz (b.1960) picked up his first camera at the age of 15 and began to document his peers. Using the public spaces of New York City as his backdrop, Shabazz embarked on a journey to document and affirm the dignity of communities devastated by Reaganomics, the War on Drugs, and the continued criminalization of poor people. From this work, a hallmark style emerged along with some of his most iconic photographs.
