In conjunction with Jamel Shabazz: Crossing 125th, an exhibition celebrating twenty-five years of the Brooklyn-based photographer's dynamic street photography in Harlem, we're excited to present this artist talk and conversation.

Join Jamel Shabazz, Harlem-based photographer Burroughs Lamar and exhibition curator Eric Booker for a conversation about capturing the energy, vibrancies and complexities of Harlem through photography. After the discussion, Shabazz will lead a walkthrough of Crossing 125th with several of his subjects, as well as participants of the Expanding the Walls teen photography program. The evening will conclude with a photo walk along 125th Street retracing the path along which Shabazz captured the images on view in the exhibition.

Participants of all skill levels and abilities are welcome to join us for the photo walk! Please bring their own camera as the Museum is unable to provide photographic equipment.

Thanks to the generous support of Target, admission is free every Sunday.
