Henri Texier Trio, Aubusson (23), France © Bruno Chalifour, 2001
The photographs of these series have been taken at various international jazz festivals (Limoges, Rochester NY, Marciac,...) and jazz venues (Limoges, Paris, New York).
Several world-famous jazz musicians and singers are featured in this body of work, such as Art Blakey on his last European tour in the late 1980s when I had the good fortune to act
as an interpreter for his stay in Limoges.
This body of work is a part a vaster ensemble dedicated to the stage and composed of contacts and collaborations that I developed with various modern dance and theater companies and festivals over a period of twenty years.
