TERRY CRYER Sonny Stitt and Coleman Hawkins 1950s

Lot 3124 Details

Description
TERRY CRYER. Sonny Stitt and Coleman Hawkins, c. 1956. 11x9" gelatin silver print on 16x12" paper. Printed c. 1970. Signed and inscribed in pencil on print recto: Sonny Stitt & Count Basie [subject is Coleman Hawkins].

Spectacular portrait of these two jazz legends.

Born in Leeds, UK, on June 24, 1934, Terry Cryer is considered to be one of the greatest photographers of modern jazz and blues. At the age of 14 he worked for a film processing company, mixing chemicals 100 gallons at a time. He joined the army at age 17, where his first job was producing identity cards for 400 fighting men of the East African Pioneer Corps. Coping with the difficulties of photographing dark faces using techniques designed for white ones prepared him to photograph portraits of African-American musicians.

American musicians had started coming regularly to Britain, and Cryer photographed the bluesmen Jimmy Rushing and Muddy Waters, and the Eddie Condon and Count Basie bands, and sold the results to London publications. Moving to London in 1957, he was straight on the scene, working for Jazz News for the princely sum of ten shillings a photograph (printing included). After making the nationals with some of his pictures, he joined the Associated Press in 1960. Cryer went on to photograph virtually all of the top blue and jazz musicians of his time, including Miles Davis, Louie Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Coleman Hawkins, Dinah Washington, and many others.

Cryer won six Kodak "Printer of the Year" awards in the 1980s. Cryer's autobiography One in the Eye (written with editor Ian Clayton) was published in 1992. His work is in the collections of several major institutions, including the Harry Ransom Center at the Univ. of Texas at Austin. Cryer passed away on January 15, 2017 at the age of 82.
