Ray Charles, Los Angeles 1985 “Creative Ecstasy”

By Norman Seeff
About the image

"Ray was testy at the start of the session. Ultimately, he loved the process and ended up calling me ‘brother’. It was a seminal session. We plunged deeply into his creative process and it became a benchmark for where I aspired to go with artists. Ray summed it up for me: "You can bring yourself to your own incompetence, but there’s always more left in the instrument...If you can think of it, see that's the key, to create it in your mind.""

Release Notes:
Limited Edition prints of Norman Seeff’s classic images are produced under his supervision at his studio in Los Angeles, California. These are archival pigment prints produced from the original drum-scanned negatives on MOAB Entrada Rag Natural, an acid-free, 100% cotton rag fine art paper.

Collector's Notes:
Norman Seeff will only produce 50 prints plus 5 Artist Proofs from any single negative.
Prices therefore depend on the size you wish to purchase, and how many of the 50 have previously sold.

Each one is hand-signed and numbered by Norman Seeff.
