For most of its infancy & adolescence photography has been considered a "minor" art, an afterthought when measured against more traditional ones. But as civilization embraces its influence & contributions, we have seen how it has permeated into every crevice of societies.
Music, contemporary music, & photography have a natural affinity together. They are inseparable. Jazz, blues, rock/roll, hip hop legends have been deified by photographers chronicling its every movement, era, hero & anti-heroine.
Many troubadours & songwriters have repaid the favor by including the recently recognized art form in the lyrics & as topics of tunes. A whole genre has grown up around photo iconography without a note being played. But also the pictures are the subjects of the myth too.
