Roy DeCarava

One of the most eloquent American photographers we don't hear about as much as we should, DeCarava created deeply engaging images of African Americans in the times he lived in New York City. While his images of jazz musicians are wonderful photographic counterparts to the music of Miles Davis, and the jazz collages of Romare Bearedn, his images of street life, working people, and lovers convey a poignancy and have a resonance easily this far out from when he created them in a career from 1950 till his death in 2009.
