Images of Jazz
The Images of Jazz collection represents the photography of Brian O’Connor and dates from 1971. With a keen interest in both jazz and photography, Brian combined the two and this is the result. As a serious hobby of over 40 years the collection has expanded to include over 1,400 artistes.
Taken mostly in performance, and with an eye ‘catching the moment’ rather than just taking a ‘straight’ shot, a unique record of jazz in mainly London and the south-east, has been captured and is now available through Heritage-Images.
Jazz Services in partnership with the National Jazz Archive and Brian O’Connor are pleased to be able to present a collection of jazz celebrities including Dexter Gordon, Stan Tracey, Dizzy Gillespie, Courtney Pine, Esperanza Spalding, Claire Martin and many more.
