Jazz in Shadows
Compiled below is a unique collection of photographs by artist Hubert Williams, primarily photos of jazz musicians playing on stage, most of the photographs in black & white. Capturing the artist's in performance reveals parts of the artists soul, both the musicians and Mr. Williams, allowing the viewer to connect with both while offering his or her own perspective to the experience.
Hubert Williams has been photographing celebrities since 2002, however, he is "absolutely transformed by shooting jazz artists as they perform. This is the art form that arrests my soul. I become one with the artist and the music. When shooting jazz, I see more than the artist or musician. I feel as if I can capture the very power behind each note that is played or sung. It's like being hit by 24 volts of power that translates into the final, soulful, perfect photograph."
Mr. Williams further explains, "Photographing peopel is an art unto itself. when I focus on my subject, I can capture their soul...their inner being. Most times I can do this spontaneously...Being in the right place at the right time is key. Capturing the perfect image sometimes comes just by chance. Then there are times when I am in my studio and I create and demand that perfect image for both myself and my subject."
If you are interested in purchasing any of the photographs, either framed or unframed, please contact Cory Deitchman at email@example.com. Mr. Deitchman will put you in touch with Mr. Williams. Any transactions will take place between Mr. Williams and the interested person.
