Herman Leonard Exhibit in SoHo, NYC May 10-June 15, 2008

The Morrison Hotel Gallery is pleased to present Jazz Giants, the fine art music photography of Herman Leonard. It has been over two decades since Mr. Leonard's photography has been shown in New York City. This exhibition is a photographic journey through the golden years of the Jazz, Blues and Bebop eras that documents the larger-than-life legends that comprise the visual album of America's music. Focusing on the life and times of famed artists such as Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington and Thelonious Monk among countless others, this exhibition features a selection from Leonard's extensive photographic history. Leonard, at the age of 83, continues to shoot, develop and exhibit his comprehensive archive. Timeless and true, Herman Leonard's photographs continue to serve as the iconic portals into Jazz's rich culture. Leonard's rare ability to connect with his subjects – from Charlie Parker to Miles Davis – made him a much-loved and welcomed figure among Jazz's musicians, giving Leonard the permission to pervade and interpersonally document the Jazz scene from the 1940s through today. Most recently, Herman Leonard was honored by the Smithsonian Institution by housing his entire collection in the permanent archives of musical history.
