Dennis Stock, famous Magnum photographer, has passed away today.
He had a great strong photographic eye. His B&W was so intense. He was a master of B&W.

I would like to remember him with the photo of his that I love the most: Miles Davis at the Birdland:

RIP - was always curious about who took that shot of Miles.

I knew the picture, being a jazz musician myself, but I didn't know the photographer.

Thanks for your posting, Orio.

Dennis Stock was also the model in Andreas Feininger's famous picture "The Photojournalist", although he's completely unrecognizable.
