I can name only a small handful of photographers now plying their trade who share Nubar’s passion (for his craft and his subjects) while at the same time retaining what amounts to an unswerving commitment to ”pure photojournalism,” a style of reportage in the finest documentary tradition.” David Friend, Former Director of Photography, Life Magazine

Nubar Alexanian, after a five-year trek across the music landscape, has done his finest work, including such diverse music personalities as Philip Glass, Aretha Franklin, Wynton Marsalis, the Roches, Paul Simon, Junior Wells and Emmylou Harris. To prepare for this project the photographer bought their music, listened to it all, watched them rehearse and perform, hung out with them, and finally, photographed them. Alexanian’s photographs are brilliant, imaginative, compelling and very moving.The Picture Professional by Fred & Gloria McDarrah
