BUDDY PERFORMED in New York at the outdoor stage of the World Financial Center - next to the Hudson River - with a lot of energy and style. I tried to capture those traits in this photo. His long fingers raced up and down the fretboard with amazing speed.
BUDDY LOOK'S like he could have been posing for this shot in the 1950's when he started performing. I wanted to convey a sense of his music being timeless and black and white helps with that sentiment.
