Contemporary jazz culture captured by photographer Laki Sideris
Laki Sideris is a Melbourne-based photographer who has been visually documenting contemporary jazz culture in Victoria for over a decade.
“I began taking photos of jazz as an excuse for hanging out in dark bars drinking alone. A camera somehow made it legitimate. Being so close to live music and especially improvised music is very visceral. You feel the music being made. My photography, when it is doing what I wish it to do, tries to harmonise with it in some voyeuristic way. I layer, I use negative space, I aim for the ah moment. I dance with the choons."
