So after living in the Boston area for years, I returned to Florida in 90s. I put together a group that got a lot of attention and heppened to meet Herb at one of our shows. He lived in the same town and had his studio nearby. After talking for a while we discovered that we had lived within 1/4 mile of each in the Boston area for over a decade and had many mutual friends and had never crossed paths, but 3 months after I come back to Florida, ba-da-bing! It's a strange world sometimes...

Thanks for another great profile Mark.

I started paying attention to jazz photography in a big way with the death of the LP, when I couldn't get great graphics for "free" with my music. Roy DeCarava's work was my first wake up call ("Roy's not a photographer, he's a *composer*," Nat Hentoff told me when I asked about Roy), and then on to William Claxton, Herman Leonard, Francis Wolff, and a host of others.

Herb's work was completely familiar but I hadn't put a name to the photographs until his great book came out. And, for once, the stories were as vivid as the pictures.

Herb Snitzer will never be anonymous to my eyes again.
