Introduction to Harry Adams: Harry Adams (b. 1918, Arkansas – d. 1988, Los Angeles ) was one of the best-known members of the Los Angeles African American community. Adams worked as a freelancer for the California Eagle and Los Angeles Sentinel for 35 years. He trained at the California School of Photography and Graphic Design and although he took these photographs as part of his journalistic assignments, his artistic ability to capture the essence of a particular moment in time earned him the moniker “One Shot Harry”.
