A tribute to jazz legends - Portrait on Textile  by Christine Iatrou

Besides portraying the society, being a jazz-fan, making concert-photos became his another main field of activity. He managed to take photos of many world-known famous jazz musicians on domestic and foreign concerts 

William Claxton was one of the greatest photographers of the jazz scene. He lived in the Los Angeles area where he began photographing jazz musicians while still a student at UCLA. In the 1950s, while in college, he helped record producer Richard Bock start the Pacific Jazz record company. He shot all the covers, and soon all the major record companies were using him. Over time he authored several books. His photography has been widely exhibited.

Milt Hinton, known as “The Judge”, was the most recorded jazz musician in history. Over his extensive career he recorded on more than 1,100 sessions as a bass player. He was also a very accomplished photographer whose images captured intimate moments shared between some of the greatest jazz legends in history.

Bob Willoughby, whose photographs have transformed the images of Hollywood's biggest stars, is a true pioneer of 20th century photography. He was the first "outside" photographer hired by the major studios to create photographs for the magazines, and was the link between the filmmakers and major magazines of the time, such as Life and Look.

Lee Tanner, whose photographs of jazz icons documented the music for more than 50 years, died Sept. 7, 2013.

Ivey Hayes has got a great collection of jazz painting. These fine art prints are created using high-quality paper, canvas and printing to produce a vivid and detailed reproduction.
