Jazz Photographer Herman Leonard Dies, Images Live on

http://www.hermanleonard.com/ World-renowned jazz photographer Herman Leonard passed away on Saturday, August 15, at the age of 87. Tiny stages, filled with over-contrasted musicians, often illuminated by a single blinding light, one that cut through the otherwise dark, crowded, cigarette and sweat filled room—these were the iconic images that made Leonard famous—although not until more than 30 years after they were taken.
