Harry Adams Art

1918-1988

Harry Adams 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." His collection is particularly rich in its images of the prominent African Americans who defined his era, but also of ordinary life, documenting social life, schools, civil rights organizations, protests, and cultural events. “His work is not only a contribution to journalism but also part of our history,” wrote Los Angeles Times. Adams' work has been licensed and has been used in documentaries and various exhibitions in America.
