Passings ~ Roy DeCarava (1919 ~2009)

Dancers, New York, 1956. Photograph © Roy Decarava.

Roy Decarava has died. He was just short of his 90th birthday. You can find notices at The New York Times here and here. I will link to obituaries as they appear. Some time ago I wrote this post on DeCarava's subtle and insightful views on race and photography.

Enjoyed your 2/4/08 post, especially DeCarava's comments on the remarkable dancehall photograph. I've put a 1985 essay I wrote about DeCarava online here: http://sites.google.com/site/roydecaravareview/. A youthful effort, but it may interest you.
