On a sad note, one of the masters of the medium, Roy DeCarava, passed away on October 28th. His book the “Sweet Fly Paper of Life” about everyday life in Harlem in the 50’s had a great impact on me. The book was produced in collaboration with the ‘Shakespeare of Harlem’, Langston Hughes.
To become a better photographer, study their work. ‘An artist who has not mastered the tradition cannot be truly innovative’. (T.S. Eliot)
