Praise for Music Makers

“It is with pride that I get to expound on the quality and beauty of Mr.
John Hester’s photography. I have been photographed over many
years and rarely get to see or approve the pictures taken of me. I
was moved and delighted by Mr. Hester’s black and white photos – his
photography is truly superb.”
Steve Holley – Legendary Drummer, Wings

“Art tells stories.
Art gives voice to the things unsaid.
Music. Paintings. Graphics. Photography. Art.
Enjoy this subject as seen through the eyes of my friend and artist with the camera, John Hester.”
Joe Orlando – The Cryers
