Released this November Art Kane: Harlem 1958 marks the 60th anniversary of one of the most celebrated images in American history.
Now commonly known as A Great Day in Harlem, the infamous shot of 57 jazz musicians gathered outside a brownstone in New York is one of the most imitated images in popular culture, by one of the world’s greatest photographers.
Art Kane: Harlem 1958 is a visual history of an iconic image including, for the first time, virtually every single frame from the historic shoot. With original text by Art Kane, forewords by Quincy Jones, the legendary Benny Golson, who appears in the photo, and an introduction by Kane’s son, musician and photographer Jonathan Kane, the 168-page hardback volume is the story behind the shot.
Released in November 2018 by Wall of Sound Editions, Art Kane: Harlem 1958 honors a pivotal moment in American history through the work of one of its most celebrated photographic voices. The launch of the book will be accompanied by a series of events and exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, London and in Italy.
