“In between that one-fifteenth of a second there is a thickness.” Roy DeCarava
Roy DeCarava’s photos of jazz musicians are some of my favorites in his body of work. Photographers who are also musicians in their own right, capture what the rest of us don’t see in the moment.
“Jazz I think approaches the visual experience of photography, the precise moment when the shutter captures that slice of experience that you see, that you feel.” Roy DeCarava
