Adrianna Mateo grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina, surrounded by an early love of photography: her mentor was her father, Roberto, an internationally known Director of Photography.
She came to New York in the early 1990s, focusing her lens on emerging musicians including Roy Hargrove, Antonio Hart, Benny Green and others. Many exhibitions later, Adriana’s new coffee table book AM Jazz has arrived, featuring stories and candid photographs, culled from her travels around the world.
Join WBGO for a gallery reception of Adriana’s jazz portraits on Thursday from 6-8 p.m., at 54 Park Place in Downtown Newark. Register here for the reception, and hear Adriana on Morning Jazz as we talk about her life and work, spanning more than three generations of great musicians.
