This was my second time going to the Mishkin Gallery on 22nd st. I thought the entire gallery was really interesting because i’m really interested in art. Photography is one of my favorite hobbies, so i really enjoyed seeing other works of photography. Milt Hinton was a jazz musician and also a photographer. He liked taking pictures in his gigs and liked taking pictures of his fellow musicians. He didn’t have really any main focus or concentration to his photography, he just took pictures of anything he saw. His photographs look pretty normal but they all have a deep meaning which is explained in the caption. Even though his pictures were pretty normal, it was still good quality and being a photographer myself, it was pretty obvious that Milt Hinton was a good photographer himself. Also, most of his photos are candid, and capturing good moments that are candid are really rare. I didn’t know a lot of the jazz musicians there, so i was a little confused at who i was looking at. The only jazz musician that i know is Louis Armstrong, and not all of the other musicians that were in the pictures. I had no idea who Milt Hinton was, but now i’m a little more interested, more in his photography than in his music though. Going to the gallery made me realize a lot how i really like photography. It used to be a major hobby of mine, but i never really ever went to galleries or exhibitions. It was just a normal hobby. But now, i’m a lot more interested and i hope to visit more galleries or exhibitions in the future. Milt Hinton really inspired me to start taking up photography as a hobby again. I want to now start taking photographs a lot more than i used to. I feel like i should bring my camera with me again everywhere i go because there are moments that happen randomly that i’d be able to capture, just like how Milt Hinton did it.
