At 86, Lennie Kesl exemplifies, in the truest sense, the "Most Memorable Character" feature published in the Reader's Digest
Kesl ... artist, jazz vocalist, recording artist, musician, disc jockey, teacher, beloved raconteur, mentor and very special friend. His energy is limitless; his knowledge of art history and jazz is encyclopedic.
While there is only one Lennie Kesl ... I am amazed that every one of the 50 images on this website reflect a different Kesl ! It's more a credit to Lennie's many faceted personality than to any photographic skill.
The camera points both ways, in expressing your subject, you also express yourself. I am grateful that my dear friend generously provided me with that opportunity.
I am working on Kuintessential Kesl - Part Two ... a mix of 75 + BW and Kolorfully Kandid Kesl images that I hope to exhibit sometime in 2013
