Stephen Hilger, Benjamin Jaffe, Russell Lord, & Bruce Boyd Raeburn
Saturday, March 14 - 1:00PM to 2:45PM
Since the 1950s Lee Friedlander has looked to New Orleans music culture as a central subject. Musician Ben Jaffe, curator Russell Lord, jazz historian Bruce Boyd Raeburn and photographer Stephen Hilger will discuss Friedlander's photographs of New Orleans jazz musicians in the context of an extraordinary chapter in American history. 'Baby' Dodds described his drumming style by saying, 'I play for the benefit of the band.' By including these words in two photographic monographs Friedlander suggests the camaraderie that exists among himself and his subjects as well as his commitment to preserving this vernacular culture.
