Vintage Collage 3

All one has to do is explore the works of photos from the past to truly appreciate both the musician and the photographer. Some shots especially behind the scene candid are truly amazing as well. It’s hard for me to imagine for the first time shooting Miles, Monk, Parker, etc and not feel totally enamored by these giants of jazz. But I’m sure one’s senses return to normal and the realization of what the possibilities are takes control, how else would we have these bright moments to gaze upon.
