"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

Whoa! What a difference in height! The guy on the far right seems to be "bummed out" that he wasn't included in on the pose. Little does he know how much he is part of the compo. :-)

And much more you can find out on Wikipedia .

RobertB from Oshawa, Ontario, Canada

Terrific candid and very humorous, too. I saw the Blues Breakers way back in the 70s. It was one of my favourite concerts. Looking forward to seeing him again in Brampton in November. He's still my favourite blues artist.

Phil R from Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan

Great photo - great back story - I'm assuming Mr Jack is the taller one (why is it that tall people get to be Mr?). It just goes to show you can create whatever story you like from an image but reality is often more unusual than you would ever imagine.

14 Aug 2011 9:05am

@Phil R: yes, Mr. Jack is a taller man ;) Thanks !

Rick from Toronto, Canada

Fantastic duo portrait! I smiled my face off at their height differences and those beards.
