Salute to a jazz photography masterDPMag Published in Blog
I've only ever dabbled with jazz. I'm certainly no expert, but I know what I like. Apparently I like Sonny Rollins quite a bit. And I definitely like jazz photography. It’s the one way I have always related to jazz easily; moody, dark images made in smoke filled clubs. You can practically feel the music in great jazz pictures. Unfortunately one of the greatest jazz photographers passed away last week. Herman Leonard has subsequently been eulogized in a variety of media, and rightly so. His work is iconic. Instead of stumbling with inadequate words I will instead simply point you to a wonderful slideshow collection of Mr. Leonard's work, put together by the BBC, and in the context it deserves—backed by the music of the jazz greats he photographed.
