Zdjęcia z duszą - osobowości w obiektywie Kasi Idźkowskiej cz.I

The photos presented in the Awers-Art gallery are part of the long-term That’s Jazz Babe project - the project aims to show the contribution of jazz artists to the world of music. As the artist claims, art in any form is a medium of dialogue, which is a powerful tool - you can see it clearly in her photos which tell not only about jazz, but also about the positive message connected with it. Each photo exudes a noticeable emotional charge - it is worth knowing the stories surrounding the works - below Kasia Idźkowska introduces us to the portrayed personages.

Russell Hall

The session was a continuation of my long-term project entitled That’s NYC jazz, Babe ”. Ras is an incredibly talented jazz musician, double bass player, singer and composer. Entering the stage in one second, he fills the room to the brim with his charisma. He is recognized by his unique style, his outfit is an expression of his multi-colored personality and, in a way, a reflection of the influence that the eccentric idol Monk Thelenious had on him. Rassell treats jazz as an important message: "Jazz is a direct connection with God through improvised music." Wynton Marsalis commented on his talent by calling "A Jazz Star of The Future" when he was just 17 years old. I think he was absolutely right.
