In the Best Possible Light: Herman Leonard’s Jazz features masterworks in black and white photography by Herman Leonard, whose pictures of jazz icons Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, Billie Holiday, and Thelonious Monk - among many others - make him the dean of jazz photographers. This exhibition of Herman Leonard’s jazz pictures honors a great photographer and some of the most beautiful photographs ever taken. “I want to show jazz artists in the best possible light,” says Leonard, “to tell their truth but to tell it in terms of beauty.”
Herman Leonard is the 2008 Lucie Award recipient for Outstanding Achievement in Portraiture.
