Herman Leonard

It’s a shame that sometimes you only find out about great people after they die. This morning i read that Herman Leonard died. Never heard of the good man before i decided to search for his work which was a pleasant surprise. Leonard was best known for the photo’s he took from big jazz musicians like Duke Ellington, Miles Davis and Billy Holiday ao.

Together with the likes of Annie Leibovitz, Cornell Capa and Henri Cartier-Bresson he was honoured with a Lucie Award.

More of his work here and here
