Black & White Images

Francis Wolff shot every Blue Note session between 1940 and 1970 with his Rolleiflex camera using 2 ¼” square film. He possessed a great talent for capturing superb portraits of musicians in an instant. His method of lighting his subjects was truly unique. He also preserved the creative essence of each of these sessions by capturing candid scenes of the musicians huddling and working through the music that would soon become classic masterpieces.

Color Images

Francis Wolff shot color photography on occasion as early as 1961 using Kodak Ektachrome film. During 1967, he shot a number of sessions in both black and white and color formats. From 1968 to 1970, when he was charged with producing duties as well photography, he shot mainly in color, beautifully documenting iconic sessions like Ornette Coleman’s “New York Is Now” and Bobby Hutcherson’s “Total Eclipse.”
