This Thursday from 6-9pm catch a rare and intimate glimpse of music legend Miles Davis as shot by photographer Glen Craig at the Leica Gallery which is hosting an opening reception for A Day In The Life Of Miles Davis. Glen Craig got his start in music photography with a chance meeting with BB King. Now a much celebrated photographer who has shot such musical luminaries as B.B. King, Johnny Cash, Gene Vincent, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Aretha Franklin The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, The Beach Boys, The Doors and James Brown.
There was a key period of 3 weeks during the early 70’s when Glen Craig had the opportunity to shoot Miles Davis. The exhibition reflects that 3 week period where Craig documented Miles’ daily life in an intimate manner, exposing the inner working of the artist both offstage and in concert at the Fillmore East in New York. Craig’s photographic work appears as part of the album packaging for Miles At The Fillmore – Miles Davis 1970: The Bootleg Series Vol. 3. Erin Davis, Cheryl Davis and Vince Wilburn, Jr., photographer Glen Craig with other special guests will be attending the opening night festivities. You can see these images up close for the run of the exhibition from April 15 – May 11. Leica Gallery is located at 8783 Beverly Blvd. Los Angeles 90048. Leica Gallery is open to the public Monday thru Saturday from 10am to 5 pm, Sunday 12pm to 5pm.
