Capturing the power and majesty in a single image is a skill very few can master. Photographer Terrence A. Reese showcases some of most striking images of black people in power in his book, "Reflections: Intimate Portraits of Iconic African Americans."

Each image is accompanied by personal written memoirs of the photo shoots, revealing a creative collaboration of dialogue and information sharing.
