There's a wonderful exhibition up at The Jewish Museum right now featuring the work of Ezra Jack Keats. It was really incredible to see his original work up close--that guy knew how to create some made texture. I also loved that they paired some of his reference shots with his finished work.  Makes me look at Brooklyn with fresh eyes. Thanks, Ezra. (And thanks, Krishna, for taking me!)
