malaysian musicians and musicians in
One of the major ongoing projects of Ismail Gareth Richards is to create a portfolio
of photograps of Malaysian musicians, as well as international musicians who have performed in Malaysia. The
photographs are produced in black and white. This is the look of a certain style, above all the classic jazz
photography of artists such as William Gottlieb and Herman Leonard. They are an acknowledged influence.
Most of the shots were taken in small club venues. This enables close-up work that
tries to catch the tension and emotion and rhythm of the live performance. Perhaps at the same time some of the
personality of and connectedness with the musician also emerges.
Fine art prints in 8x10" and 16x20" are available for sale. All prints are signed and
titled by Ismail Gareth Richards. The 8x10's are an open edition, while the larger size is a limited edition. All
photographs are copyright Impress Creative & Editorial.
