Renowned photographer Richard Corman has been capturing poignant moments of human triumph for more than three decades, and his iconic subjects include Nelson Mandela, Mohammed Ali, Madonna, Robert De Niro, and Isamu Noguchi.

In 2015, he generously began a project with the Jazz Foundation called “The Last Note.” With “The Last Note,” Corman has created an archive of photos and videos that captures the history, the successes, and the challenges that New Orleans musicians have faced throughout their lives and especially in 13 years since Hurricane Katrina.

The Last Note may become a book, an exhibition that will travel the world, and/or a documentary to share these musicians’ heartbreaking and inspirational stories. We are honored to share this preview with you.

All proceeds from “The Last Note” will be reinvested in Jazz Foundation programs so that we can continue to provide a safety net for our treasured artists in times of crisis.
