Graduation 1949
Tisa B.
sent me the following announcement, which any and all photography fans in the New York area should check out, since Roy DeCarava, the esteemed photographer, is 87 years old, and as she says, there might not be that many more opportunities to hear him. His photograph "Graduation (1949)" is pictured above (from Masters of Photography, © Roy DeCarava).
