IDC HOW MANY TIMES IVE REBLOGGED THIS IT IS LITERALLY MY FAVOURITE FUCKING THING
"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

Up close inside Chile’s watery Marble Cathedral
Instagrammers from around the world trek to Catedral de Marmol, or the “Marble Cathedral,” on Chile’s General Lake Carrera to photograph the dazzling series of water-filled caves and tunnels. The unique rock structures were formed by over 6,000 years of waves crashing against the Patagonian Andes, and geologists attribute the water’s intense blue to the presence of finely ground glacial silt. The Marble Cathedral can be explored by boat or kayak, allowing adventurers to get an up-close look.
Though beautiful, the Catedrales de Marmol are not easy to reach. Adventurers must fly 1287 kilometers (800 miles) from Santiago to the city of Coyhaique, and brave an additional 322 kilometers (200 miles) of dirt roads to reach General Lake Carrera.
