by Liverpool Entertainment

Saturday 28th May 2011 finds Terry Cryer in conversation with William Ellis at the Southport International Jazz festival. Presented by RedHouse Originals and SCF Hub Gallery in association with Look 11. Two of the UK’s most successful and prolific music photographers collide in their shared experience at Southport International Jazz Festival Gallery for 2011. Terry Cryer has a way with a camera like no-one else; timeless, intuitive, effortless, iconic and alluring. His images and unique printing techniques tell stories that words could never define. Cryer's stunning portraits of the great jazz and blues musicians of the 1950s capture the essence of the time and create a compelling insight into the key figures in this revolutionary movement. Cryer's 1958 portrait of Muddy Waters is featured on the Mississippi Blues Trail to mark the legendary musician's cabin at the Delta while Sammy Davis Jnr was so enamoured with Cryer's photograph, taken in a London
nightclub in 1960, that he would go onto use it as his publicity shot throughout the 1960s. Cryer's photographs are held in distinguished international collections including the Henry Ransom Center at the University of Texas and collectors and admirers of his work include Sir Paul McCartney and Jools Holland. Terry Cryer kindly took the time to speak to WinkBall about his amazing career behind the lens. Have a listen to this great icon of photography and let us know your thoughts, here at WinkBall.com
