Roy DeCarava

Today I am captivated by the photography of Roy DeCarava. As is apparent in his work, he relied primarily on ambient light, giving his photographs a dark, almost velvety quality and reminding the viewer that DeCarava began his career as a painter. DeCarava passed away this week. Articles in the LA and New York Times detail the life and career of this talented man who quietly turned the lens on the people and world around him.
