Here we have a black and white gelatin print of a photograph taken by the renowned Harlem Renaissance photographer James Van Der Zee.
African American photographer James Van Der Zee (1986-1983) was known as the “Eyes of Harlem” in the 1920s and 1930s. Some 100,000 photographs are apart of his legacy. He took his first picture in 1900, when photography was relatively new. He then became a household name photographing legends such as Bill Cosby, and this famous black & white photo from 1933 of legendary heavyweight boxer Jack Johnson.
This rare piece of history captures world champion boxer Jack Johnson signing documents. Van Der Zee's signature appears in the bottom left corner of the photograph. The piece is matted and housed in a wooden frame, and is approximately 22” by 17” inches.
