Art Kane, "Jazz Portrait: Harlem, 1958"

The work of art is a copula: a bond, a band, a link by which the several are knit into one. Men and women who dedicate their lives to the realization of their gifts tend the office of that communion by which we are joined to one another, to our times, to our generation, and to the race.”

– Lewis Hyde, The Gift: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World
