ASX.TV: Stephen Shames – “Interview” (2007)

Julie Grahame interviewed Stephen Shames for ZOOZOOM magazine in 2007.

In April 1967, Shames, a college student at the University of California, Berkeley, met the Black Panthers at a rally to end the war in Vietnam. He was invited to photograph them and continued to do so until 1973. His close friendship with the Black Panthers, and Bobby Seale in particular, gave Shames unusual access to the organization. The immediacy and intimacy of Shames’s photographs offer an uncommonly nuanced portrait of this dynamic social movement, during one of the most tumultuous periods in recent U.S. history. Now nearly forty years later with a book published by Aperture and an Exhibition at the Aperture Foundation’s New York Gallery, Stephen Shames talked with ZOOZOOM.
