Beate Sandor • SHOWTIME

a personal note..

the idea to this art photo book was born only for one reason: to benefit musicians with it, if they are included in, or not.. After publishing a big part of the gains will flow back to them, who inspired me, my art during my whole life (52). Even if I myself am a visual artist, the fuel and the focus to this silent compilation was and remain the love to the BLUES. This is just a small cross section through the time over one decade of music history - captured through the lens from a time witness. This book could never be completed, there are so many great musicians worldwide! My apology goes to those artists, who couldn't be included in it. It doesn't mean, I wouldn't like their music, I just couldn't be at more places in the same time, and since last year I don't make concert photographies anymore. I also would like to thank to the many-many true artists, also to my personally musician friends for their overwhelming feedback to my initiative. It gives me even more power to publish this art photo book, with which I am trying to keep those fabulous ten years alive, showing through my own skills my deepest respect to all, also i.M. who already are gone, and my high appreciation to them who still keep continuing their fight, doing their great work every day, just for uplifting our soul.

sincerely: Beate Sandor
