Review: Stephen Shames at Steven Kasher Gallery

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, February 17, 2009

Shames, whose photographs of Black Panthers were shown here in 2007, makes another strong impact with pictures collected under the title "Childhood & Youth."


The eighty-seven black-and-white photographs, taken between 1968 and 2005, are as tough and unapologetic as their subjects—young activists, and kids smoking pot, shooting dope, and sniffing glue. His shots of teen hustlers in Times Square were made in the early eighties, when Larry Clark stalked the same sidewalks. Both photographers are drawn to rebels and outlaws, not as voyeurs but as witnesses with outsider streaks of their own.

From The New Yorker.
