Publisher Description:
The jazz scene that burgeoned in London and Paris in the 1950s was in part a reflection of post-war celebration. Americans traveled to Europe again for reasons other than war, and in the smoky clubs talented artists from both sides of the Atlantic developed their craft. Walter Hanlon began his career as a musician, playing guitar and broadcasting. He developed an interest in photography and in 1949 began pursuing this alternative career, using his musical connections to help open doors for big events within the London jazz scene. Having always disliked the type of photographs produced by camera mounted flash, he developed a technique of "off camera" flash to create atmospheric pictures in the clubs of London and Paris, although he preferred to use available light on portraits. Walter's contacts ensured he was at the forefront of the Jazz scene, and these stunning photographs are the result.
