One of the major ongoing projects of Ismail Gareth Richards is to create a portfolio of photograps of musicians, especially but not exclusively Malaysian musicians. 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.
