Very, very sad. It took 2 months for me to learn that a twitter buddy & awesome photographer Donald Agarrat, passed away back in September. One day he tweeted me asking to shoot my recording session, came & shot the session and made friends with everybody there! Musicians and engineers alike 🙂 Then, he came to the Harlem Arts Fest & shot us there…just because he wanted to and was a serious fan of the music. He brought a lot of light to some stressful moments and made everyone smile! ♥ ♥ Like, the nicest person, ever!
We’ve mainly kept in touch on twitter, and after not receiving a tweet from him in a while, I looked at his page to learn that he suddenly died, so young. He took these wonderful shots of us at The Bunker Studio in Brooklyn, which appears to be the last set of photos added to his flikr. Sending love. You will be missed, Donald!
It was Mamie Till, Emett Till’s mother years ago who made this profound statement:”Two months ago I had a nice apartment
in Chicago. I had a good job. I had a son. When something happened to the Negroes in the South I said, ‘That’s their business, not mine.’ Now I know how wrong I was. The murder of my son has shown me that what happens to any of us, anywhere in the world, had better be the business of us all!!!”
Happy 55th Birthday to the genius, Prince!
