and went on to chronicle the aspirations and ambitions of the black community into the 1990s. All aspects of the Scurlock Studio are well represented: the portraits of well known and unknown Washingtonians; the city of Washington, including events and storefronts; the visiting celebrities ranging from DuBois to Fredi Washington; and many photographs of the leaders, students and faculty of Howard University, where Addison Scurlock and his sons Robert and George were the "unofficial official photographers" for the better.

The Scurlock Studio and Black Washington: Picturing the Promise, an exhibition presented through this month by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, features images of young ballerinas in tutus, of handsomely dressed families in front of fine houses.

The Scurlock Studio and Black Washington: Picturing the Promise, an exhibition presented through this month by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, features images of young ballerinas in tutus, of handsomely dressed families in front of fine houses and couples in gowns and white tie at the NAACP’s winter ball. You see these amazing strivers, you see these people who have acquired homes and businesses, says Lonnie Bunch, director of the museum, whose permanent home on the National Mall is scheduled to open in 2015.

Excellent book. I love the pictures

Scurlock Studio captured Black Washington for one hundred years.

There's a lovely mix of event photography (weddings, special events, portraits) and documentary images (sports, visiting celebrities, students at work and play, the general Washington scene.)

Couple this with a handsome layout, heavy paper, an intelligent text, and historical information about the studio, and one gets an informative and delightful package.

And then there is the cover image. A group portrait, carefully staged and yet disarmingly casual, of a bunch of African-American girls (and one grinning Dad and one boy) in their adorable 1920's bathing gear and sun hats, happily posed on a handsome car. A bloody amazing photograph. Technically smooth and welcoming, with faces that you can fall into, an image of summer, a paean to American recreation, a photograph both art and artifact.
