Frank Stewart, Untitled (from the "Second Line" series), Mounted Print

Best known for documenting jazz musicians, Frank Stewart creates intimate photographs of Black culture that offer a glimpse into the intense emotion brought forth by a style of music that welcomes improvisation and freedom of expression.

Here, a woman, donning an all-white ensemble and holding a large umbrella, dances to the rhythms of a small procession of horn players nearby. An artist in residence at the Studio Museum and a member of the Kamoinge Workshop, a New York-based collective of African-American photographers founded in 1963, Stewart captures meaningful moments that record the integral role jazz plays in the black community. (Artist in Residence 1975–76)
