Richard Young Gallery is launching a new exhibition of portraits by photographer Tim Motion.

The exhibition will feature pictures of some of the most influential jazz musicians in the history of the genre, including Ray Charles, Miles Davis, Bo Diddley, Slim Gaillard and Art Blakey.

Since he first attended the Lisbon Jazz Festival in 1971, Tim Motion has built an unrivalled reputation as a jazz photographer after opening a club that brought him into contact with the men and women who defined the genre.

An Eye for the Sound will open from 4 May 2010 to 7 June 2010 at The Richard Young Gallery in London.
