11" x 14"
February 19, 2016, on the eve of Sidney Poitier’s 89th birthday, I was invited over to the Poitier résidence to shoot some photos of the legend with Lenny and Denzel as well as to show Mr. Poitier some rare posters from my black film poster collection. He was blown away by the collection. It put him in a great happy mood which can be seen here. Signed by artist. 1 of 1.
Lenny Kravitz, Jack White, Prince, Sting, Miles Davis, Marvin Gaye, Jane’s Addiction, Bob Marley, Quincy Jones, James Brown, George Clinton, Earth Wind & Fire, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Dolly Parton… the list of musicians whose albums or other artwork feature art and/or photography by Grammy nominee and Leica camera ambassador Mathieu Bitton, reads like an eclectic Who’s Who of music history. In addition to shooting music icons, he’s photographed a stunning array of entertainment legends including Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, and Sidney Potier and serving as official photographer for comedian Dave Chappelle (most recently working on the just-released Netflix special “Sticks & Stones”), as well as capturing compelling scenes and intimate portraits of everyday lives.
