Is It Magic?
I just had to add this other article on the great jazz photographer Herman Leonard.
Photographs like the one of Duke Ellington on the right epitomize Leonard’s style. A style that he became famous for. When I look at this type of image I feel as though I’m there, I feel as though I can hear the sounds of the audience the beauty of the music. I suppose hat’s what the best photography is all about.
Feel the moment, let the photograph transport you to a time and place you’ve never been or are likely to go. Sheer beauty, sheer mastery.
here’s the link to the article in the Washington Post – enjoy.
