Carol Friedman photographs and designs image campaigns for celebrated and emerging figures in the art, music and media worlds. Her classic portraits
elegantly capture the allure, depth and idiosyncratic style of her iconic subjects. In addition to her photographic works, Friedman's corporate and marketing
background includes positions as Creative Director for Elektra Entertainment, Art Director and chief photographer for Blue Note Records and Vice President,
Creative Director for Motown.
An avowed music lover, her images of jazz, soul and classical recording artists have been widely published and may be seen on hundreds of album and CD
covers. Jazz artists, in Friedman's view, "the last bastion of genius, humor and style," were her first subjects and continue to inspire her life and work. Her acclaimed
collection of Jazz portraits, The Jazz Pictures, was published in 2001 by Arena Editions.
Friedman's feature-length documentary film, Abbey Lincoln: The Music Is The Magic, is being edited for a fall 2016 release. To view a preview clip, track the film's
