In the late 1950s, famous photo-documentarian W. Eugene Smith lived and worked in a NYC loft building with an amazing list of inhabitants - famous jazz musicians, filmmakers, writers and artists. In photographs and audio recordings, he documented an era and rare views of people such as Thelonious Monk, Zoot Sims, Norman Mailer, Diane Arbus, and Salvador Dali, presented here in photographs, work prints, videos, and audio listening stations.

This exhibition was organized by the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona and the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University.

The Jazz Loft Project at the Center for Documentary Studies was made possible through the ongoing generous support of the Reva and David Logan Foundation, with significant additional support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, and the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (The Grammy Foundation).

The presentation of this exhibition at the Chicago Cultural Center is made possible in part through the generous support of the Reva and David Logan Foundation.
