I went to the Gallery, Milt Hinton’s Jazz Photographs: Classics and Works in Color. I found out a lot of stuff about the exhibit in general but let me read off the pamphlet that the lady gave us. Milt Hinton’s known as the renowned jazz bassist, he’s called “The Judge” and he took his camera everywhere he went. He’s popular for taking pictures of his friends who happened to be musicians. He ran all around the world, from New York to Tokyo. He rode in bars, bus stations and recording studios so he was a every day photographer.. So what appeals to me is that he’s an everyday photographer. What I saw at the exhibit was someone who took pictures of everyday things. I feel like his photographs were, pretty average. Nothing special because they were of ‘everyday things’. What’s so special about everyday things? well, it’s because each picture told a story. There was one of a Black man walking down a street. That’s great. I saw the picture and saw nothing special. But then I read the caption and it told a story about how that man was the famous musician Otis Redding… loljk no it wasn’t I don’t know who the musician was because I forgot the name. But Otis Redding is the only jazz musician I know. Anyway, the story was captivating at the time but I’m sad to say that I can’t remember it. The quality of the picture was nice too. There’s weren’t any Polaroid shots, so I assume everything was developed on it’s own. That’s quite impressive especially at that time. Uh, I can relate. I have always wanted to become someone what of a photographer. Not because of money or anything but because I like my camera and I like showing other people the world through my eyes. Really. Would I ever take a photography class? maybe. But I have no intentions of majoring or minoring in it, so that’s what makes me different. What makes me the same (or almost) is that I am an everyday photographer (kinda). Because I do take pictures of everyday things, my friends, and maybeeeeeeeeee musicians. Haha no I don’t know any. I took a picture with J Cole once. That’s not the point. Even though I’m too lazy to bring my camera with me everywhere, it’s way to big, I appreciate the fact that he brought his everywhere and I can relate. One day, I’d like to go to Japan as well. It’s on my chopping block, next city. I like to travel a lot. I need like 40 more words… eh I don’t know what to say. The exhibit was nice. Clean. Okay I’m done.
