Recording sessions were stimulating to photograph, because everything was in motion: the subject, the musicians, the technicians and the photographer.

It's hard for me to assess what I brought because each time you pick up a camera and point it at a person, you're trying to define that person so to talk generally is difficult because I have to think of a given image in order to conjure up what we're talking about.
Eve Arnold time
