Says French photographer Didier Jallais: "I always, more or less, practiced photography but my work of dental surgeon and my multiple activities and passions (I play clarinet, I am a private pilot of helicopters, I practice running and marathon, etc.) have never left me a lot of spare time. I travel a lot but especially in India, where I used to work voluntarily as dental surgeon. And it is in Benares, years ago, that I met a French famous photographer, Xavier Zimbardo, to whom I showed my photos … He encouraged me to continue and he gave me confidence. Since we became great friends and he continues to give me precious advice. Being a musician and liking particularly jazz, it was obvious that I want to photograph musicians in concerts. Unfortunately without accreditation it is extremely difficult to have the authorization to photograph. So I've made the great majority of my concert photos of jazz at Marciac, a very big world-famous festival.”

Jallais will discuss his images in conversation with Hrayr Attarian, and accept questions from attendees. This edition of Seeing Jazz will be posted in archival edition on YouTube.
