Peter Gannushkin's Jazz Photography

Over the past several months I've noticed on Facebook and elsewhere, mostly in relation to news about trumpeter Nate Wooley, that a jazz photographer by the name of Peter Gannushkin is compiling an interesting body of work.

He seems to be in the thick of several different jazz communities in NYC. And he seems to be capturing rather regularly very striking images of really interesting performers, in action, and they rather often happen to be players who have come west at one time or another to play for the Redwood Jazz Alliance.

Here are his photos at Flickr:

Here is an interview with him in which he talks about giving away his work for free:

He also maintains a web site, Downtownmusic.net

Check him out.
