"Jazzography!"
The Color Performance Portrait Series

Danny Seraphine
by Bob Barry

Internationally acclaimed jazz photographer Bob Barry graces the walls of Flazh!Alley Art Studio with his exciting color photographic series of jazz musicians in his new exhibit, "Jazzography".

Throughout his career Mr. Barry has photographed over 500 of the finest and most famous jazz greats, including Nancy Wilson, Kenny Burrell, Rosemary Clooney, Herb Ellis, Arturo Sandoval, Frank Sinatra Jr.and Diane Schur. Mr. Barry has also photographed several rock artists including, Johnny Rivers, Jim Webb, Andy Summers, CTA and Florence LaRue and The 5th Dimension.For the last fourteen years Mr. Barry has been photographing renowned jazz guitarist John Pisano's popular "Guitar Night" which now resides at Vitello's Restaurant & Jazz Club in Studio City, CA

In 2008 Mr. Barry was invited to participate in a joint showing of three jazz photographers at the prestigious American Jazz Museum in Kansas City, MO and was commissioned to shoot their annual Rhythm & Ribs JazzFestivals. He will also be doing a solo exhibit for the AJM in 2011. An avid devotee of black and white photography, Mr. Barry shared these thoughts on photographs in color:

"It is true that in many cases B&W images can be more dramatic and have a great deal of emotional impact, but not every photographic moment has to be gut wrenching and laden with critical lighting and razor sharp contrasts. The shadings, and nuances of a color portrait can evoke a different spectrum of emotional responses from the viewer."

The only public receptions will be on San Pedro's 1st Thursdays Art Walk Nights, December 2, 2010 and January 6, 2011 from 7-11 PM ADULTS ONLY (18 and over) "Jazzography" can also be seen by appointment. Please call, 310.833.3633 or flazhalley@aol.com
