The combination of music and the visual arts, whether it’s photography, video, painting, has always been a good fit. It was actually some of the black and white photography I saw of jazz artists during the mid-20th century that inspired me to want to be a photographer. Shots like smokey club scenes or studio shots of Miles, Bird, Ella, Duke, Dexter Gordon… Very artistic stuff!
This week I created a couple photographs that bring together jazz and photography. Two of my favorite things in life!
