New York-based photographer. Beginning in 1968, she began to shoot street photographs, including a series about homeless people. In 1983, she began a large-scale body of work of African American jazz artists. The Vanguard and Sweet Basil were among the jazz clubs where she photographed in New York City. She also photographed musicians at the Festival du Jazz in Nice, France, for about 5 years. She has continued to photograph Jazz artists in a variety of venues in the United States and Europe until the present. In July, 2003, she had a one-person exhibition, "Dizzy's Legacy," at the Palazzo Agostinellli Museum in Bassano del Grappa, Italy.
