PETE TURNER

One of the original master color photographers (Ernst Haas and Jay Maisel are two others), Pete Turner passed away today. He was 83. Pete made many of the most iconic jazz album covers of all time. Photo District News voted him as one of the 20 most influential photographers of all time, and in 1981 the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) awarded him its Outstanding Achievement in Photography honor.
