John - thank you for bringing this to my attention. This is quite remarkable work, elegantly composed, beautifully lit. Shafts of light split the frame, balustrades lead your eye in, shovel-shafts and window frames create tension, but always always at the centre of each carefully composed frame is a deep and rich slice of humanity. I'd never heard of DeCarava before. All I can say is wow. (and thanks!)

Thanks for the comments, John. You're right in everything you say about DeCarava. He deserves to be much better known.
