Conceived, designed, written and made by hand as a prototype by master photographer Roy DeCarava (b.1919) in the early 1960s yet unpublished for nearly half a century, The Sound I Saw has largely existed, until now, as a legend among the cognoscenti of the photography world. Presented as a stream of 196 soulfoul images interspersed with DeCarava’s own evocative poetry, the book is, in its form and effect, the printed equivalent of jazz. DeCarava is a life-long New Yorker who from his immediate world creates images that transcend the specific to depict universal themes of joy, anticipation, pain and survival. Largely unpublished, he was first recognized for his images of daily life in Harlem and portraits of musicians like Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday. It is these two themes – Harlem and jazz – interwoven and inseparable, that are the ostensible subject of the book. However, the seemingly casual yet deeply felt compositions and the deep, rich tones of DeCarava’s photographs stir emotions that resonate far beyond one neighborhood and one era.
