RARE Original Iconic R.C. HICKMAN 'African-American Lady in Mirror' Black & White 8x10 Photograph ~ Fair Condition.

R.C. Hickman (c. 1922 – 2007) is best known for his iconic photographs of the civil rights movement. He was one of the most important photographers in the history of Dallas, Texas, and for many decades he worked as a photographer for the Dallas Star Post (an African-American-owned newspaper). He performed freelance work for Jet magazine and also documented the inequality in Dallas for the NAACP, such as photographing school segregation for the NAACP's court cases.

This is an ORIGINAL photograph from the R.C. Hickman archive collection. It is not a reproduction and measures 10" high and 8" wide.

This photograph is very rare, but has seen better days. There is age-related foxing, discoloration, edge tears, bends, large creases in the left lower corner (somewhat difficult to see in the pics, but quite obvious in real person) and apparent damage on the right lower corner.

Circa 1940s, we would consider it to be in fair condition. The African-American woman resembles Josephine Baker, but she has not been identified (please be so kind to notify us if anyone can identify her). She is quite beautiful, donning her wide-brimmed hat and ankle strap heels as she admires her reflection in the mirror. This photo is stamped PHOTOS BY R.C. HICKMAN on the lower back.

A striking image for any serious fine art photography collector. Despite its areas of damage, this is a very rare piece by a historically significant photographer.
