NINA SIMONE (ca. 1959) Photo by Herb Snitzer


New York: Herb Snitzer, [ca. 1959]. Vintage original borderless 9 1/2 x 6 1/2″ (24 x 17 cm.) photo. With two stamps on verso of photographer Herb Snitzer and a photo agency sticker, various creases, very good-.

Photographer Herb Snitzer is known to have done various portraits of Nina Simone for her concert hall debut at Town Hall in New York, a concert which then became the primary basis for an album on the Colpix label, and we believe this photo to have been taken at that time.

In any case, a powerful portrait of this legendary artist at the onset of her great career while still in her mid-20s.
