The Life Aquatic with Miles Davis

I honestly had no idea such watery photos existed of Miles Davis.

You’ll have to be so kind as to flip over to visit my friends at Getty Images to see the real deal, but it’s so worth the extra clicks.

md-getty1 I’m already on record with my obsession for the abundance of outstanding Miles Davis photographs at Getty Images. And even though I would love to post the photos in all their glory, I try and show a modicum of respect to the Getty Copyright Overlords and merely post a super-cropped piece of the image – with a link to the real deal. Of course, there’s the ‘getty images’ text to contend with, but it’s a small price to pay for such a wealth of excellent photographs to take in.

So consider this a new-ish feature here on Miles Davis Online – Getty Images: Inside The Miles Davis Collection

Miles Davis And Getty Images

75614455 It’s a major understatement to say that Getty Images has in their possession some of the most amazing photos of Miles Davis. But far be it from me to steal borrow such wonderful images for Miles Davis Online and risk the wrath of the company.

And even though I think I should be able to post the photos, I shall not. Instead, I’ll provide the links. Sure, the ‘getty images’ text splashed across the center of every photo is like the most annoying thing ever, but these are fantastic photos from some very talented photographers. I’m grateful to Getty Images for housing such an outstanding collection.

Every time I think I’ve found my favorite Miles Davis image, I quickly find another.

There are hundreds and hundreds of Miles Davis photos. Here are a few.
