The name "CyberHalides" is not Greek, it's a photographer's pun on the active light-sensitive chemical compound in traditional photographic film and paper - "silver halides".
I'm a photographer who specialisations in capturing live jazz because it enables me to combine two of my interests. This site contains images of live jazz, mostly in Australia, particularly Canberra. New releases are usually announced on the Cyberhalides Jazz Facebook Page
Why are some photos in colour? These are mostly shots from several years ago. I now almost exclusively publish and print in B&W. I prefer it, it suits jazz, and the lighting in many venues doesn't result in good colour.
Framed & unframed copies of most images are available for sale. For further details, contact me or email me.
CyberHalides Jazz supports the following high quality venues, sites and stations:
Jazz In Concert at The Gods at the ANU on (usually) the first Tuesday of each month, but check the guide for variations to this schedule.
ABC Jazz on digital radio or online.
extempore by Miriam Zolin - a website and publishing house for arts and writing that is about, inspired by and responding to jazz and improvised music. Issue 5 of the extempore journal contains the eleven images in my recent ANU exhibition "Canberra Ain't Got No Soul ... but ... It Sure Got Plenty of Jazz!!"
Canberrajazz.net by Eric Pozza - for all the good oil on the Canberra jazz scene, including reviews, gigs calendar, links and some (colour) pics
