From Ella To Coltrane: The Jazz Photography Of Roger Kallins

This exhibition commemorates Kallins’ tremendous passion and talent for both jazz and photography, highlighting some of his best images taken over 50 years, from Ray Charles in Miami, 1958, to Sandip Burman at Daytona State College, 2007.

Roger Kallins (1938 – 2013) was born in London, England to the late Emile & Eve (Freedman) Kallins and was a child prodigy pianist. At age 15, he moved with his parents to Miami, Florida, and served in the U.S. military as a radio operator and photo journalist in the 1960s before settling in Los Angeles in the 1970s, where he spent several years racing sportster bikes, fine-tuning motorcycle performance and co-founding XRV Performance. His skill with sportster bikes earned him the reputation as an expert in the area. He built specialty bikes for the motion picture industry, including four bikes for the movie Terminator 2 and also for private clients, including Jay Leno and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Kallins was truly a Renaissance man who traveled and worked throughout Europe and was an accomplished street photographer, photo journalist, musician, camera repairman, and motorcycle innovator whose work was recognized in industry magazines. An avid jazz enthusiast, he photographed musical greats such as Dave Brubeck, Paul Desmond, Elvin Jones, Don Ellis, Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald. In 2004, he moved to Ormond Beach to care for his elderly mother. Kallins was documenting the restoration of Neil Armstrong’s 1967 Corvette when he died suddenly of cancer in 2013.

This exhibition commemorates Kallins’ tremendous passion and talent for both jazz and photography, highlighting some of his best images taken over 50 years, from Ray Charles in Miami, 1958, to Sandip Burman at Daytona State College, 2007. His entire body of work is owned by Kallins’ friend and admirer, Anthony Ehrlich. 42 images are generously on loan for this two venue exhibition, with informative biographies written by Dr. Gary Sutton, with research support provided by Juliana Romnes, Gallery Coordinator at Arts on Douglas, a division of Atlantic Center for the Arts, New Smyrna Beach. After initial two exhibitions in the Daytona Beach area several years ago, this will be the first showing of Kallins’ work to the Orlando public. Co-curated by Peter Schreyer and Anthony Ehrlich.
