MONTHLY MEETING & PRESESNTATION
Enid Farber: Photographer of Jazz
Wednesday, 17 May, 7:30pm
Strauss Mansion Museum
We welcome Enid to the Strauss Mansion for a talk about her work.
Enid Farber is considered one of the world's top jazz photographers. Farber and her work were featured in Jazztimes Magazine's December 1997 “Classic Jazz Photography” issue as one of the masters of jazz photography. She was the sole female of four names mentioned in the New York Times in May 1997 as “one of the young generation of talented photographers documenting the current jazz scene”.
Some of Farber’s classic jazz images were selected for noted filmmaker Ken Burns' historic 20 hour documentary on jazz aired on PBS in January 2001 and companion book. In the book, Bums acknowledges Farber, the sole female amongst 14 legendary male photographers, as “an extraordinary group of the finest jazz art photographers in the country”.
