History of Rock and Roll
Carlos Santana – 2011
I first started to work for Carlos Santana in 1989 when his management asked me to shoot a rehearsal and some band portraits. I have had the honor to photograph Carlos on and off stage many, many times since, including doing all the photography for his mega-hit 1999 release, “Supernatural”. In 2011 Carlos was invited to visit his high school in the Mission District of San Francisco. After touring the school with his musician wife Cindy Blackman-Santana, and actor Edward James Olmos he took the stage in the high school auditorium and performed a set of music for the student body with a group of current students at Mission high. This photograph was taken during that high School performance.
