of William Claxtons photographs
of American jazz musicians have become the iconic images by which
we remember them - a young Chet Baker lying on his back in the studio,
trumpet in hand; Bill Evans and Ray Charles at their pianos; a sparkling
Sarah Vaughn; a somber Miles Davis; and countless more.
Less well known is the fact that since the early
1950s. Claxton has photographed scores of acclaimed actors,
artists, directors, musicians, writers, and entertainers.
Photographic Memory, Claxtons just published
first monograph of these images, features 115 wonderful and revealing
portraits - only a handful of which have ever been seen before.
