A Great Day In Harlem

Watched this documentary yesterday & thought it was amazing how a gathering to take a photo for a magazine brought together so many great jazz musicians. The gathering evoked so many emotions amongst these wonderful men and women who were a part of the jazz culture. These folks were genuine fans of each other as well as friends. It was funny how long it took these guys to settle in for one photo because they were so excited to be in each others presence. Now a famous photo but truly is more than that. Photography brings people together. The photographer who took the photo wasn't even deemed a "professional". He was just a kid who worked for the magazine which shows that photography is the art of just being there. Check out the documentary in full if ever you get a chance.
