THE BLUE NOTE PHOTOGRAPHY OF FRANCIS WOLFF – $100 PER PRINT.
Blue Note co-founder Francis Wolff was a master photographer. Bring-ing his camera to every Blue Note session, he built an archive of great photographic value and a visual documentation of jazz history un-matched at any other record company. His ability to light, frame and capture a shot in less than a second was astonishing.
His work has been likened to that of the great portrait photographer Yousuf Karsh. But where Karsh had hours with an obedient subject to get a shot, Frank had an instant with a preoccupied musician. And he didn’t waste shots reach-ing for an image. His eye and his technique nailed it, usually in the first shot… not unlike the way great jazz soloists can nail a masterpiece on the first take.
