How Dorothea Lange Shot, Migrant Mother, Perhaps the Most Iconic Photo in American History

When we visualize the Great Depression, we think first of one woman: Native American migrant worker Florence Owens Thompson. Few of us know her name, though nearly all of us know her face. For that we have another woman to thank: the photographer Dorothea Lange who during the Depression was working for the United States federal government, specifically the Farm Security Administration, on "a project that would involve documenting poor rural workers in a propaganda effort to elicit political sup...

“A Great Day in Harlem,” Art Kane’s Iconic Photo of 57 Jazz Legends, Celebrates Its 60th Anniversary

Image by Art Kane, via Wikimedia Commons Sixty years ago, Art Kane assembled one of the largest groups of jazz greats in history. No, it wasn’t an all-star big band, but a meeting of veteran legends and young upstarts for the iconic photograph known as “A Great Day in Harlem.” Fifty-seven musicians gathered outside a brownstone at 17 East 126th St.—accompanied by twelve neighborhood kids—from “big rollers,” notes Jazzwise magazine, like “Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, Count Basie, Sonny Rolli...

This Week in Photography Books: Katsu Naito

  Once upon a time, Billy and Sally Bunny were frolicking in the front yard. Behind them, Aspen trees swayed in the light breeze; the leaf-flutter shadows dancing on the wall. (Yes, bunnies know what shadows are. Duh! What did you think, bunnies were dumb, because they have small brains?) Sally Bunny had her back to the trees, and the rich, red fence behind them. Billy Bunny faced her, his back heels sitting on the concrete steps that divided the front yard in two equal parts. (Of course bunnies...

It's been a rough couple of weeks here in Houston.  First, there was the story of a young boy who was abducted by possible white supremacists here in Houston.  And then mere days later, children were killed in a mass shooting at a high school just south of the city.  Then, on the very next school day after the shooting, there was a rash of threats at 6 more schools in the Houston area.So ... yeah, it's been a tough week. ...

His name is Dapper Dan, and in Harlem fashion circles, he’s practically a household name.Designer Daniel Day—commonly known by his aforementioned nickname—made his most memorable work to date in the ’80s and ’90s,...

AK Monthly Recap: January 2018

This month was all about moving. In fact, I didn’t leave New York once within the month. This is the third time in two years that I’ve gone a full month without leaving the city, and I’ve made my peace with it, but I’m looking forward to getting back to international travel next month and beyond. Honestly, I stayed put this month because I moved into a new apartment. Moving is a pain in the ass to begin with, especially so in New York, and especially especially so when you’re in New York and s...

The 14 Biggest Black Fashion Moments In 2017

2017 was rough, y’all. Aside from all the havoc Trump’s administration wreaked on our bodies and beyond, it was the year that saw designers playing musical chairs at the biggest fashion brands, a mass exodus on New York Fashion’s calendar in favor of Paris, and the sad, sad state of print journalism (though, the price of highly-sought after magazines is on the up and up!). It was a year of instability, not only in the fashion industry but all across the world.The upside to all of this, is that ...

The density of its population, by American standards, also presents its denizens with the opportunity to cross between one artistic or subcultural realm and another with ease — or with geographical ease, anyway.

New York City's Best Coffee Shops

A Different 24 Hours in Philadelphia, My Former Least Favorite City

Booking.com invited me to visit my least favorite city for 24 hours and give it a second chance, staying in really nice accommodation and doing lots of nice activities. I was intrigued, and I immediately knew the city to visit: Philadelphia. I’ve been to Philadelphia somewhere around eight times. And while I don’t hate the city, I’ve never really liked it.
