In 1964 Newsweek hired Roy DeCarava to shoot their cover about protests in #Harlem. The cover ended up with 3 legendary photographers (and fellow @kamoinge_images members) #ShawnWalker, #RayFrancis and #LouisDraper. How did they end up being the cover? “Reluctantly, Newsweek hired Roy DeCarava. They had never given him a job before, but now they said he could come do some pictures. Roy knew that we would do it for him. He asked us to sit and look angry for him. We were having a ball. It was a hot, muggy day, and we were kidding around until the white art director chided, "You boys don't look angry enough." We got pissed and Roy got his picture.” - Louis Draper 📷 ( as written by @johnedwinmason) #archives

Louis H. Draper was born in 1935, in the former capital of the Confederacy, Richmond, Virginia, during the Great Depression. He documented his neighborhood in Harlem for many years, which offers us a unique perspective of an insider in the segregated citizens of America. He believed in the history and culture of African-Americans and he placed the experience of his people at the center of his artistic practice. In 1963, Draper was one of the founding members of Kamoinge Workshop, a group of fifteen black photographers that were trying to escape the "black photographer" label. He wrote that they dedicated themselves to “speak of our lives as only we can.”⠀

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

OPEN TOMORROW: Louis Draper’s work will be on view at our Paris Photo exhibition, “Black in America: Four Photographers of the 1960s and Beyond,” tomorrow through November 12 at Booth D13. Draper’s work honored and captured Black life in America during a time when it was undervalued. He described his practice as a means of “engaged resistance,” and was a member of the Kamoinge Workshop as well as a photography teacher for over three decades.
