Photography Exhibit
In 2012 at the third annual Jazz in Motion Juried Photography Exhibition participants displayed images that best defined the essence of jazz music, jazz musicians and the audience which supports them.  Thank you to all of our talented participants that entered last year’s competition, it was outstanding!  We are excited to announce that we are preparing for the fourth annual exhibition in 2013, anticipating 2013 to be our best show yet.

We believe that photography and live music have an enduring symbiotic relationship that we want to celebrate.  We will be continuing with the current theme of images that best define the essence of jazz music, jazz musicians and the audience which supports them.  These images can originate from Jazz jam sessions, festivals or concerts which have taken place locally or elsewhere across the globe.  We know that there’s an explosion of jazz and jazz festival photography out there waiting to be shared and enjoyed by all.

Join this great network now by adding your profile to our flickr site and entering your best photos into the competition for 2013.  We’d love to see your work and can keep in contact with you as the exhibition details unfold.

Our jurors of the 2013 competition are Bill King (Artistic Director of the BIJF), Kris King (Award winning concert photographer), Igor Vidyashev (Award winning concert photographer) and special guest juror Winner of the third annual Jazz in Motion exhibition in 2012 Larry “Dawk” McCarthy!

Winners of the 2012 Jazz in Motion Juried Photography Exhibition


1st Place Winning Image of the 2012 Jazz in Motion Juried Photography Exhibition

“Shrimp Daddy” by Larry “Dawk” McCarthy

2 Shrimp Daddy Larry Dawk Mccarthy

“Taking photos of blues performers allows me to unite my two favorite passions. It has allowed me to get to know many of the local and not so local blues performers. When I get a good shot, I wait until I can see that performer again and I take two copies of the photo to the performer. I give one copy to them and have them sign the other copy for me. To date I have more than 60 signed photos on my wall. And with my newly developed contacts, I now have a couple of CD photo credits as well as numerous photo credits on performers websites. Blues is my musical passion yet I cannot play a note myself, nor do I wish to. My photography is my way of giving back to musical community that I love so much.” – Larry “Dawk” McCarthy

“Night of Beaches Jazz” by Ryan Raz

5 Night of Beaches Jazz - Ryan Raz

“Photographer, inventor, scientist—some say mad—Photography is to me a form of self expression and experimentation, allowing me to incorporate my scientific knowledge into my artistic aspirations, exploring non-conventional ways of capturing, processing and displaying images. Currently I’m in a maximalist (anti-minimalist) phase where I create layers of complexity through planned in camera double exposures.” – Ryan Raz
