The Crew, 1984
This photo was taken by Jamel Shabazz, a Brooklyn-based photographer who did mainly documentary and street-style photography. In 2002, Shabazz published a collection of photographs taken in New York City during the eighties, titled Back in the Days. This photo was part of the collection, which depicts the emerging hip-hop culture in the big city.
The photographer managed to capture the spirit and the style of New York City back in the day, and his work has been published in exhibitions, books and editorial magazines time and again. This is one of his most memorable photographs, documenting the hip-hop culture and fashion trends of the eighties.
