Photo Wizardry!


An undated photo of Frank Bolden, left, and Sarah Vaughan, right, with another woman and man at piano, in an unknown club with a portrait of Ann Baker.


Beyond amazing for the subjects and the dazzling photography — all angles, movement, mirrors, reflections, frames within frames within frames (as composition and as visual pun). Full face, 3/4, and profiles. Stunning.

(Thank you to Thomas Doughton)

  1. Could the pianist be Jimmy Jones? And this picture from the early 1950s?
