Lee Tanner began using a camera as a teenager in New York City. An avid jazz fan from the age of eight and inspired by the jazz photography of Gjon Mili, Bill Claxton, Herb Snitzer and Herman Leonard, he turned to documenting the jazz scene with a love for the music comparable only to his creative drive for visual expression. Downbeat was the first magazine to publish Tanner's work in 1958 and later his pictures appeared on the pages of many other journals including Rolling Stone and Jazz Times. They also graced the jackets for LP and CD records produced by Atlantic, Sony/Columbia, Verve, Fantasy, Rhino and Prestige. Lee Tanner's prints are archival and museum finished.
