A child of the Harlem Renaissance and an artistic collaborator of Langston Hughes, Roy DeCarava is an unsung hero of Black history. Convinced that the lives of ordinary Black people deserved to be immortalized and documented in photos, Roy celebrated Black people through his art, a process that the incomparable author Gary Golio and illustrator E. B. Lewis captured in this beautiful picture book.   “Life is how you look at it.” And for Black photographer Roy DeCarava, life in his neighbourhood was beautiful. Follow Roy through 1940s Harlem as he takes out his camera, pops in a roll of film, and opens his eyes to the beauty around him. A little boy is drawing on the sidewalk with chalk. SNAP! A young man at the bus stop with a baby in his arms. SNAP! Kids playing in an open fire hydrant. SNAP! Looking at them all, Roy sees beauty everywhere in Harlem, as do the people who look at his photos.   This deeply researched picture book also includes additional information on DeCarava, a list of places to view his photos, a bibliography, and photos.
