Reflections in Black PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Reflections in Black free pdf Featuring the work of masters such as James VanDerZee, Gordon Parks and Carrie Mae Weems, this pictorial collection gives an insight into African American life through the eyes of black photographers. This book is a refutation of the caricature of black life that many mainstream photographers have sustained by continually emphasizing poverty over family, despair over hope. Nearly 600 images offer moving glimpses of everyday black life, from slavery to the Great Migration to contemporary suburban life, including rare antebellum daguerrotypes, photojournalism of the civil rights era and portraits of middle-class families.
