About Stephen Shames
Featured on LensCulture
- The legacy of the Black Panther Party can’t be understated — this retrospective of the BPP’s ideologies and goals shows that while progress has been made, we still have a long way to go.
- For over two decades, Stephen Shames injected himself into the mean streets of the South Bronx and made pictures about the kind of life that he saw there— unflinching yet intimate, straight-shooting yet sensitive, objectively powerful but also full of personal emotion—this is a beautiful book.
- The world has an estimated 150 million street children. Many of them fall victim to violence, abuse, and are unable to attend school or learn a trade — here are 40 portraits from five continents.
