Artist Statements

“If light is the language of photography, I believe low light whispers dark splendor. I try to capture the subject in low light settings; dark backgrounds and low light settings shall tell the mood. I wish to see thru my lens. Before I close the shutter, I usually watch and wait for the subject to show their subtle secrets." -- Ron Jones

“My photography attempts to document jazz musicians in their working environment; on the gig and at rehearsals. Through the visual image I hope to capture some of the camaraderie, seriousness of intent, and joie de vivre (joy of living) that makes up the jazz musician’s professional life.” -- Ken Foley
