One of the great perks of photojournalism is being exposed to things you probably wouldn’t be otherwise. One of those experiences was July 2007, when I photographed and met Marvin Hamlisch, a legendary composer of musicals at Reynolds Plantation. Hamlisch died Tuesday while in Los Angeles.
I have nothing but the utmost respect for someone, like Hamlisch, who dedicates their entire life to their work. He poured every ounce of himself into it. Which is why it’s no surprise that his accolades include three Oscars, four Emmys, four Grammys, and a Tony Award. Unbelievable.
These photographs are from one of his many performance at one of Mercer Reynolds cabins on the Reynolds Plantation property on Lake Oconee. It was a performance I will never forget.
