leave a comment »

Skip Bolen’s images capture the heart and soul of his hometown New Orleans. His images document the people, places and spirit of The Big Easy. Bolen uses a mixture of film and digital imagery … black-and-whites with his Leica film camera and color with Canon digital equipment. He uses available light only and seeks to capture “the moment” that defines his subject.

From his Website,“(Bolen) is in constant pursuit of impromptu moments that display the heart and soul of what is Jazz, often capturing the intense concentration and sheer joy of the extemporaneous collaborative effort in the facial expressions of jazz musicians.”
