Charles “Teenie” Harris (1908–1998) photographed Pittsburgh’s African American community from c. 1935 to c. 1975. His archive of nearly 80,000 images is one of the most detailed and intimate records of the black urban experience known today.
The Carnegie Museum of Art has an incredible digital collection, peep it here: http://teenie.cmoa.org/Default.aspx
I love Teenie’s street photography, but there is something really special about his studio portraiture. Feeling inspired.
