Tell us a little about your background...
(Google: "SEALEY2K")
I'm a product of the legendary "Jamaica Funk" music wave that originated in Jamaica, Queens (NY) back in the early 1970's when funk, contemporary jazz, rock and R&B fused to become a unique alternative to the Motown and Beatles sounds we heard so much on the radio. Our music was at the cutting edge of jazz. As part of a hot, dynamic four piece horn section supported by strong rhythm and vocals, I learned there's more to jazz than what meets the ear. Visualization of the many moods and colors created in music ultimately transcends the sound. I was soon introduced to a new "instrument": the DSLR camera. The management of sound transformed to the manipulation of light. I found my music background to be extremely valuable when attempting to capture the intensity of a musician's expression. The anticipated climax of a musical phrase can reverberate forever in a photograph.
Currently I am an event photographer. A large number of my assignments consist of photographing jazz performances and festivals where my camera becomes my instrument and I get to perform along with the artist. This position has given me the unique opportunity of photographing many prominent personalities and events, including arguably the "greatest show on earth" in modern history: the inauguration of our 44th President of These United States, Barack H. Obama.
My camera of preference is the Sony Alpha 700 equipped with a 2.8/70-200G lens and an F828 Cybershot as backup for special shots. Why do I choose Sony? The world can afford to be seen from a different view. And that seems to be the common denominator in my life - looking at things from another perspctive.
I've always believed JAZZ to be more than just music. It's a way of life; a subculture. You recognize it when you see it, you recognize it when you hear it.
And the answer to the obvious question is - Yes. Sometimes I do hear my sax "calling me", but for now I prefer to keep my mouth shut with eyes and ears open.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN...

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!

Buster Williams
