Herman Leonard: Photographer of Jazz Musicians New Orleans, Louisiana | leonardherman.jpg
"I don't know whether it is the love of photography or the love of what photography did for me --it gave me some measure of importance. I was a withdrawn, shy kid and always felt inferior. But the camera was my security blanket. If I go out tonight and I'm not with somebody, I'll have that camera, whether I shoot or not. That's my security blanket. I can go anywhere in the world now."
