Jim Marshall's "Jazz Festival"15/06/2017 - 31/07/2017
Jim Marshall and Leica Camera are synonymous. Jim bought his first Leica in 1959 for $50 down and twelve $24 monthly payments. This was the beginning of his fascination with Leica cameras, which led to his collection of twenty different Leica M bodies along with thirty or more Leica lenses with Leicavits modified to fit all of his Leica M bodies. Jim used his beloved Leica cameras up until his death in 2010. Before Jim walked out his front door, he always reached for a Leica to put on his shoulder. It was a ritual he performed every day of his life. Every iconic photograph Jim took was captured with his Leica camera. As Jim once said, “it’s never been just a job it’s been my life.”

"I like Chinese poetry very much and the idea of traveling on the road with no given destination. One of the great individuals who spoke on this topic, was a very influential sage and philosopher, by the name of Chuang Tzu, who existed in the 4th century B.C. Chuang Tzu extolled the idea of wandering and thinking, if you like, as did Basho in Japan. My personal version of that I suppose would be wandering about in a country like China with a Leica in my hand. The title “The Bones of Chuang Tzo” is not original but comes from a poem by Chang Heng who lived between 78-139 A.D. It gives me great happiness to be out of the big cities and photographing these timeless areas and seeing that to some degree they remain untouched." - Andy Summers

"Intimacy is the nucleus of all of my work. Whether a momentary glance from someone unknown or a moment from someone closest to me, an intimacy is always present. It has been my lifelong work to provide a safe environment of non wherein my subject is able to communicate freely."
