Stephen Shames: Childhood and Youth

Stephen Shames: Childhood and Youth at Steven Kasher Gallery. "...Since he began working, in 1967, childhood and youth have been the central concerns of Stephen Shames’ photography. Shames has published eight books largely concerned with youth in struggle. The exhibition will feature over 75 vintage prints made in the late 1960s through today. In 2004, Stephen Shames started a foundation to educate kids in Uganda. In 2008 Shames was hired by City of New York’s Human Resources Administration to photograph fathers and their kids for bus-stop billboards in the five boroughs." More...
