This rare photo from 1933 shows a very dapper Langston Hughes posing glamorously. Consuelo Kanaga captured the Harlem Renaissance artist in this closeup which looks almost like a fashion editorial. Most portraits of Hughes are at a distance and were often more formal in his early years. There is definitely something about black and white film that captures a certain mood and this photo is a prime example.
With that said, It was time to rework the blog into a cleaner format as is fashionable with the times. Black and white graphics are quite in style now for web design but we did leave a bit of color and imagery to keep things a little unique.
