CURATOR’S TOUR OF A JAZZ MEMOIR: Photography by Herb Snitzer

June 6, 2021 Atlanta $0.00 - $12.00

Exhibition curator Tony Casadonte will be at The Breman this Sunday at 2:30, he will talk about photographer Herb Snitzer and tell stories about the images on display.

Herb Snitzer has spent a long and storied lifetime photographing his passions. The child of Jewish immigrants forced out of Ukraine, he connected to social justice issues from an early age.

After serving in the military and graduating from the Philadelphia College of Art, he lived in New York City from 1957 to 1964 while pivotal civil rights demonstrations and legislation were taking place. There, he photographed for LIFELook, The Saturday Evening Post, Fortune, TIME, and the New York Times.

He worked as a photographer and editor for the music magazine Metronome, which gave him the opportunity to photograph and befriend many of the greatest jazz musicians of the time including Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Nina Simone and Sarah Vaughan.

While those photographs remain iconic, they were really just a springboard to the half-century of photography and activism that followed.
