Artist Profile

Photographe reporter flâneur connu pour ses photographies de musiciens de jazz depuis 1975.

 Ce qui m’intéresse dans les photographies de musiciens que je réalise c’est le rapport le  plus étroit  possible entre l’image et le caractère, à la fois, du musicien et de sa musique. 

Ma satisfaction est à ce prix et ce n’est qu’alors que je considère l’image comme acceptable .  
Enfin, j’ai toujours pensé qu’un jour le jazz sera écouté avec autant de respect et de ferveur que la musique de Mozart, Bach et Beethoven.»                   Christian Kitzinger
