Frank Stewart’s deep investigation of his African American roots through music, coupled with his intimate back- and on-stage access, offer a rich view of the jazz world via a post-modern vision that is firmly rooted in diverse artistic traditions.
Jazz legends and younger stars -- Miles Davis, Wynton Marsalis, Dianne Reeves, Cassandra Wilson, Etienne Charles, and Cécile McLorin Salvant among them -- are featured in seventy photographs. They include gelatin silver prints and large-size digital compositions created since 1973 by Stewart, lead photographer for Jazz at Lincoln Center and the 2017 winner of the Lona Foote-Bob Parent Award for Career Excellence.
