Richard Sexton

"Creole World is a complex, multi-layered photo essay linking New Orleans, which is frequently referred to as " the nothernmost Caribbean city", with its cultural kin further south. The similarities are quite striking and at times even uncanny. 

Over the course of 38 years, Sexton has traveled across Latin America and the Caribbean—including Haiti, Colombia, Argentina, Cuba and Ecuador and New Orleans—capturing the similarities among these locales.

Creole World features 200 color images as well as essays by Creole-architecture scholar Jay D. Edwards and photography historian John H. Lawrence. Together, the essays and photographs take readers on a journey through the ever-changing Creole world.”

I was born and grew up in the Caribbean, so I welcome any chance to feature this part of the world on ArchAtlas (even if I could not find any pics from Puerto Rico), thanks to Architizer for bringing this artist to my dash!

Roy DeCarava

"DeCarava (pronounced dee-cuh-RAH-vah) turned his lens on the neighborhood of Harlem during the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s, depicting the everyday African American experience from an insider’s perspective.

His work, painterly studies of shadow and darkness, transcended racial boundaries, juxtaposing stark black-and-white tonality with highly impressionistic composition.

DeCarava was the first black photographer to receive a Guggenheim fellowship with the receipt of a $3,200 grant in 1952. His first major exhibit was at the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego in 1986; one decade later came a landmark solo retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art.”

I do not want a documentary or sociological statement. My goal is a creative expression, the kind of penetrating insight and understanding of Negroes which I believe only a Negro photographer can interpret. —Roy DeCarava
