Unsung Jazz by Antoine Sanfuentes at The Gallery at Vivid Solutions brings together the photographer’s ongoing project of documenting the local jazz performers who have had a substantial impact on jazz in Washington, DC but are relatively unknown outside the area.
Unsung Jazz marries two of Antoine Sanfuentes’ personal interests, jazz and documentary photography, together in an exhibition that lends an insider’s look into the Washington, DC jazz scene. An Emmy-winning producer and talented documentary photographer, Sanfuentes also works closely with People Encouraging People, an organization that supports disabled and disadvantaged people in the Baltimore area. He is an accomplished drummer and music enthusiast. Sanfuentes received his Bachelor’s degree in anthropology from American University.
Sanfuentes is the Senior Vice President of NBC News. Most recently, Sanfuentes served as NBC News Vice President and Washington Bureau Chief. In his 20 years as a journalist, Sanfuentes has covered virtually every corner of the globe including Iraq and Afghanistan. In 2009, Sanfuentes coordinated NBC News’ Special “Inside the Obama White House” reported by Brian Williams. Over his time at NBC News, Sanfuentes has also produced notable coverage from across Africa alongside Ann Curry; including reports from Darfur, the eastern Congo and a historic interview with Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir.
The Gallery at Vivid Solutions is partnering with Twins Jazz to produce the three jazz performances that will take place over the course of Unsung Jazz. The exhibition is partially funded by the National Endowment for the Arts.
