IN HONOR OF JAZZ APPRECIATION MONTH: PHILADELPHIA PHOTOGRAPHER SHOWS JAZZ ARCHIVE FROM THE 1980’S & GRAND OPENING OF NEW GALLERY SPACE
“During the 1980’s the art form of Jazz music saw a resurgence in it’s various manifestations: recordings, writing and, especially, live performances. In Philadelphia and elsewhere venues as diverse as the Academy of Music, the Mann Center, the African American Museum, Penn’s Landing, Chestnut Cabaret, Ripley’s, and many smaller clubs hosted the musicians whose creativity gave rise to this renaissance. It’s this context- the live performance- that inspired me to document some of the people who graced the stages of Philadelphia and beyond with their original sounds”
– Mark Garvin
The photographs in this exhibit are archival black and white silver based (darkroom) prints
personally, made from the original negatives.
