Photo of Ray Charles

Norman Seeff

I came across this photograph at the estate sale of Sherman Darby, tour manager for B.B. King. This image was used as the cover of Ray Charles’ last CD, “Genius Loves Company.” Because one of the cuts featured B.B. King, I venture to guess this photo was given to King for his work on the CD.

I had the opportunity to speak with Norman Seeff shortly after I made this purchase.
Norman was impressed by the creativity and dedication of Bill Linton and Promega Corporation and invited me to visit his studio to discuss the possibility of exhibiting some of his photos. Bill and I had the privilege of meeting with him in Burbank earlier this year, and I am now working with Norman to bring an exhibition of his photographs to Madison, WI next year.
