Jazz by Guy Le Querrec

Guy Le Querrec's lifelong passion for jazz allowed him to truly capture the febrile intimacy and idiosyncrasies of the genre. The Magnum Shop is pleased to present a collection of fine prints exploring the nuances of these images, the unique stories that lay behind them, and their testiment to the spirit of jazz.

“What impels me to shoot is my curiosity for their idiosyncrasies, their ways of being, their behaviors, their stories: their dialogue with life.” - Guy Le Querrec

"It’s not about voyeurism, but rather about witnessing the complicity and bond that generated the spontaneous expression we call jazz."
- Jean-Louis Lemarchand

“Undoubtedly, Le Querrec mirrors his models in what resembles a virtuoso performance, but is in fact the work of extreme sensitivity: he captures the most acute, most challenging and perhaps the richest moments in the adventure of improvisation, and elevates it to the field of observation.”- Philippe Carles, Jazz: de J à ZZ (Editions Marval. 1996)
