About This Image
With photographer's "Nadja Pictures" stamp, and title and date in red pen by photographer on verso. Jacques Bisceglia was born October 21, 1940, in Paris, France. French photographer Marc Garanger provided Jacques Bisceglia with his first real exposure to photography from 1960-1962, while they were both stationed in Algeria. As an army photographer Garanger produced a controversial series of portraits of about 2,000 Algerian women. In 1966 Garanger received the Prix Niepce, one of the most important photography awards in France. Bisceglia began to specialize in jazz photography after he was lent a camera by cornet player Rex Stewart in 1965. To date he has made over 200,000 photographs, including 80,000 in color. He has taken virtually all of the jazz greats during this period. His photographs have been published in numerous magazines and newspapers in France and internationally, including Current, Jazz Magazine, Hot Jazz, Jazzman, Traditional Jazz, Free sounds, Afro-music, Release, the Express train, Words and Musics, Télérama, Cable hebdo, Télécable Hebdo, Satellite Channel, TV Hebdo, Resonance (Ircam), Reexamined City of the Music, Tuning fork, the Bottom of Aisne, History & Inheritance no.4; Paris, Paris Match, Happy Down, The Voice Village, Melody Maker, The Wire, World Jazz, Jazz Forum, Svenska Dagbladet, Swing Newspaper, Epoca and many others. He also has credits on over a hundred jazz albums. Bisceglia's photographs have illustrated virtually every important jazz book produced from the 1960s on.
