Some Thoughts About Photography. Volume 46.
we all know that, sometimes good friends on tumblr say goodbye for a while or longer.
Gaetano’s last entry in his blog is from May 15th, so quite a while ago now. I look at his blog from time to time to see if anything happens. Nothing new so far. Okay, cheers from here, Gaetano.
The photo today is one of my favorites on his blog, good shot as always. Gaetano is good and doesn’t make a big deal about that, this is quite refreshing. On the blog there are lots of portraits from musicians from the jazz scene. I like that style. He concentrates on the person, the instrument, nothing else. Often we see the musician, a dark background and that’s it. The pics have all a monochrome touch, it fits to the music they make. At least my impression. It’s good when you found a style and you are happy with that. Portraits are difficult anyway, the reduction is the thing I like here. So quite instructive to take a look on the blog.
Marcus Miller, yes, one of the musicians I like since decades. Miles Davis sideman in the 80’s , played on hundreds of other records. It’s not so unusual to see him with a saxophone (on Miles Davis’ Tutu and his solo records he plays it also). Gaetano wrote me, it was backstage and Marcus played a bit saxophone to get warmed up. Fine, fine, fine.
Would like to see more, really.
Cheers, until next week
