My principal influence in Jazz photography died : Herman Leonard (1923-2010)


Sad news ..

I just found out that Herman Leonard, my principal influence in Jazz photography has died (http://www.nola.com/entertainment/index.ssf/2010/08/herman_leonard_photgrapher_of.html)

I hope to meet him one of these days and take some shots with him on the paradise to Abbey Lincoln, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Art Pepper, Dizzy Gillespie, Billie Holiday ..

He was old but still active .. as you can see on the last video on January of 2010 he worked with Lenny Kravitz for his new album

He was THE Eye of Jazz.

So long Herman and thanks for your Artwork, I never had the luck to meet you but I heard so many time that you were a great human being

Please visit his website .. passionating.
