In Remembrance of: Benjamin Henry, Eva Burrell, Eric Paul Jackson, Bertha Smith, Leon Guitry, Jackie Hall
By Richard Henry on may 01, 2011

A Momentary Lapse Of Reason/Upcoming Exhibition May 19th -June 19th, 2011

Beginning May 19th -- June 19th, Maya Hed will present her solo photography exhibition, which captures exclusive pictures of extraordinary jazz artists from all over the world, during the sound check in opera houses and jazz clubs where the artists experience very intimate, secluded and unique moments.

In this intimate series the viewer can experience through the photographic medium, the vivid expressive force of jazz music, echoed by the photographs that enable us to "listen" with our eyes.

Further, after enduring the black and white photography documentation of jazz music over the past years, Maya’s fresh approach presents a large amount of photographs in color in the belief that emotions and stage life, come to light better in her colorful menagerie outlook.

The camera leads us behind the scenes with such luminaries as Stefano Bollani who overwhelmed Italian jazz culture, Tony Pancella who is a very important figure in Italian Jazz, and Nicola Stilo who played with one of jazz’s greatest artists, the notorious Chet Baker and many more.
