The Sweet Flypaper Of Life, by Roy DeCarava, Langston Huges

Why?

"Roy DeCarava was the first Black photographer to win the Guggenheim fellowship, and even with the accolades he couldn't get a book publisher. That's until he decided to give his photos to Langston Huges. This turned out to be a great marriage of photos and words." 
- Andre Wagner, Photographer

“Roy had an inner power and was able to perceive and feel with his subjects. There is a kind of humility that highlights the nature of inequality. That was an inspiration for me and the precipice of my lifelong work, which [centers around] emotions. It's about photographs, sure, and about making formal things and not pretty pictures, but most of all strong pictures. I like to think of my work as an emotional investigation, or a clinical investigation into what it means to be human.”
-Larry Fink, Photographer
