Billie in mirror

Billie Holiday, with her beloved dog Mister, gazes at her mirror image in 1947 photo by William Gottlieb for Downbeat magazine. Library of Congress Collection.

To mark the centennial of Billie Holiday’s birth–April 7, 2015–I am hosting an online exhibition of images of her: artist’s renderings, photos and fan tributes in the form of look-alikes. This exhibition will appear on this blog. There is a rolling deadline; images will be posted as they are accepted. There are no fees or prizes. Email submisisons to cbwpoet@gmail.com. I am jurying the exhibition with help from Jeffery Boston Weatherford, a.k.a. Jeffery the Artist. Please share this call with artists, photographers, models and jazz fans.
