Arthur Elgort: Jazz

Edited by Marianne Houtenbos. Preface by by Wynton Marsalis. Foreword by Hank O’Neal.

Arthur Elgort: Jazz

Portraits of jazz icons from famed fashion photographer Arthur Elgort

Fashion photographer Arthur Elgort has loved jazz since he was nine years old, when a childhood friend introduced him to the music; he soon found himself frequenting jazz clubs all over his native New York City.

The dynamic style that made Elgort such a sensation in fashion photography was directly informed by his love for jazz and dance. His talent as a photographer grew alongside his interest and knowledge of jazz. By the time he was a well-known working photographer, Elgort could parlay his influence into meetings with his boyhood idols, requesting to have his favorite musicians appear in both his fashion and personal work.

Countless jazz greats have appeared in front of Elgort's camera, including Illinois Jacquet, Dexter Gordon and Dorothy Donegan. Each sitting produced not only images but memorable stories: the time Elgort took Dorothy shopping at Chanel; what it was like to shoot Dexter in his Hell's Kitchen apartment; getting to know Illinois and his wife personally. Arthur Elgort: Jazz collects these moments and more, exploring for the first time the creative exchange between the photographer and his musical heroes.


Arthur Elgort (born 1940) studied painting at Hunter College but quickly transitioned to photography, finding painting too slow and solitary. Elgort attributes much of his spontaneous and liberated style to his lifelong love of music and dance, especially jazz and ballet. In his long career he has worked on many major advertising campaigns, including for Chanel, Valentino and Yves Saint Laurent, shot countless fashion spreads and published several books.

From Dexter Gordon to Dizzy Gillespie—Arthur Elgort: Jazz

From Dexter Gordon to Dizzy Gillespie—Arthur Elgort: Jazz

Featured image, of jazz great Dizzy Gillespie aboard the SS Norway in 1988, is reproduced from Arthur Elgort: Jazz, the new collection of photographs and recollections from the renowned NYC fashion photographer. "Dizzy Gillespie was always 'cooler' than everyone else," Elgort writes. "He was a ladies' man—very charming and stylish and fun to be around. On the SS Norway he was very interested in the models I brought with me—he told [model] Jeny Howorth that she should come with him to the casino to be his lucky charm." continue to blog
