The TAAP Archive, founded by Govenar and Kaleta Doolin, traces the growth and development of vernacular and community photography among African Americans in Texas, including Alonzo Jordan, Marion Butts, Louise Martin, Elnora Frazier, Juanita Williams, and Benny Joseph, among others. View a selection of the Documentary Arts images on the ICP website.
It’s worth noting that this isn’t the institution’s first archive of African-American photography, the ICP already has in its Collections the Daniel Cowin Collection of African-American History acquired in 1990.
