Who is Enid Farber?

Enid Farber began photographing musicians in Atlanta in 1979. She moved to New York in 1985 to record the history of jazz & world music for publications & record companies worldwide. Farber was the first female photographer and first of her generation to win the Jazz Journalists Association's awards for “Excellence in Jazz Photography" and "Best Photo of The Year". Several of her classic images were selected for noted filmmaker Ken Burns' historic PBS documentary on jazz. Farber's exhibit will feature iconic images such as Miles Davis, Bob Marley, Ray Charles, Wynton & Branford Marsalis, Bill Clinton, India Arie, Fela Kuti and Tony Bennett which have been exhibited internationally. Jazziz Magazine, said, "If we were to identify a JAZZIZ visual historian, her name would no doubt be Enid Farber. For longer than a decade, her photography has taken readers on an odyssey, to experience the most adventurous music & to meet the most interesting personalities, from both the new & traditional worlds of jazz."
