dignity, humanity

This morning on NPR’s Weekend Edition, a remembrance of photographer Roy DeCarava. He died earlier this week at 89, an artist who broke ground in pictorializing the everyday lives of the black community in his native Harlem neighborhood in the 1950s. His freeform style and love of music led to comparisons of his art to that of the jazz musicians he photographed. Check out the slide show here.
