Synopsis: Walking in The Light is John Cohen's photographic journey towards and through gospel music. From 1954 to 1964 he photographed in the black churches of East New York, on the streets of New Haven, in the home of blind Reverend Gary Davis, as well as in the darkness of a boxing gym and the blackness of coal shovelers at an industrial site. Of all these images, those of worshippers at a small church in Harlem form the emotional centerpiece of Cohen's journey, where music leads to spiritual release in trances and dances. The last destination of this odyssey is Johns Island, South Carolina, where Gullah children connect to African ancestors through games and play. Cohen's photographs of musical performances in religious settings reflect the inner sound expressed on the face of a singer, a soulful expression, the quality of light that illuminates the face of a child, or the intensity of a prayer. Sound, song and religious feeling are permanently rendered in black and white.

Book Description »Walking in the Light« ist John Cohens fotografische Reise hin und durch die amerikanische Gospelmusik. Von 1954 bis 1964 fotografierte er in den schwarzen Kirchen von East New York, auf den Straßen von New Haven, in der Heimat des blinden Reverend Gary Davis, sowie in der Dunkelheit eines Boxstudios. Cohens Fotografien von musikalischen Darbietungen in religiösen Umgebungen spiegeln den inneren Klang wider, der auf dem Gesicht eines Sängers Ausdruck findet, ein gefühlvoller Ausdruck, die Lichtqualität, die das Gesicht eines Kindes erhellt, oder die Intensität eines Gebets für die Ewigkeit festgehalten in meisterhaften Schwarz-Weiß-Fotografien. (Text engl.) 22,5 x 23 cm, 96 S., zahlr. s/w-Abb., Leinen. Bookseller Inventory # 816914
