|Message from Ken Franckling
I'm a veteran arts writer and freelance photographer specializing in music photography and occasional portraiture. Since the early 1980s, I have covered the jazz scene throughout the Northeast with occasional journeys to other regions in pursuit of essential musical moments. I'm now extending/shifting that coverage to Southwest Florida. In June 2003, I was honored to accept the Jazz Journalists Associationís Lona Foote-Bob Parent Award as Jazz Photographer of the Year.
My serious interest in jazz began flourishing in the early 1980s after the Newport Jazz Festival returned to its Rhode Island roots. I covered jazz and wrote a regular column, The Jazz Condition, for UPI for more than 20 years, and am a contributing writer / photographer for JazzTimes, Hot House, AllAboutJazz.com and other publications. These galleries contain some of my favorite images from that continuing photo odyssey.
All images are available for editorial and commercial usage, as well as for print purchase. Please email me if you are interested in purchasing or publishing any of these images.
