“Each one, teach one” -African Proverb
As most families have been struggling these past few years (some obviously more than others), it seems it would help everyone if we all took a page from this proverb. Stephen Shames is an award-winning photographer for his amazing photo essays on social issues for foundations, advocacy organizations, the media, and museums. From the Black Panther Party based out of Oakland, California during the Civil Rights Movement to the startling homicide rates of Brooklyn, New York in the 1990’s, Shames is undoubtably an old-school-veteran-OG photographer.
Stay warm this winter everyone.
Shames has been profiled by numerous publications, such as People Magazine, CBS Sunday Morning, Esquire, US News, Ford Foundation Report, Photo District News, and American Photo (15 Most Underrated Photographers).
