ROY DeCARAVA, 1919 – 2010

We have lost another of the great ones: Roy DeCarava has passed.  If you ever had the pleasure of meeting Roy, reading his books or seeing his extraordinary prints, you know he will be missed.  Roy taught for us at The Ansel Adams Workshop in the early ’80’s and I won’t soon forget his gentle, gracious manner.

To read his obituary in yesterday’s New York Times written by Randy Kennedy, click here.

To see the piece the NYT Lens Blog has created on Roy called “Parting Glance” by David W. Dunlup, click here.
