Aretha Franklin photograph by Leni Sinclair The 'queen of soul,' Aretha Franklin shot in Motown by legendary Detroit photographer Leni Sinclair, 2016's Kresge Foundation's Eminent Artist of the year (see The Guardian UK Photo Section, Jan. 28, 2016) Archival inkjet print Dimensions: 11 x 14 inches including borders (image: 9x 12 inches) Hand signed, titled & dated in ink on the lower margins. Very good condition. Acquired directly from artist. Lot 180 is an authorized primary dealer rep of Leni Sinclair About Leni Sinclair Sinclair is a recognized leader of the 1960s-70s counter cultural movement in Detroit, which she amply documented through vivid and dramatic photography. But she may be best known for capturing the raucous rock n’ roll scene of that era, including photographs of such rock legends as Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, and jazz icons such as Miles Davis and Sun Ra. Focusing her lens on musicians and fellow activists from nightclubs to festivals to street demonstrations, Sinclair captured a pivotal era in American history when art and politics intertwined. Some of her photos – including shots of jazz saxophonist John Coltrane and of Nigeria’s rebel music star Fela Kuti – are among the most widely known of their subjects.
