Rashid Lombard has photographed both local and international musicians, and has paid particular attention to recording South African musicians-in- exile such as Hugh Masekela, Miriam Makeba and Abdullah Ibrahim. In 2010, he contributed to the exhibition at the Duotone Gallery at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival. His book of jazz photographs, ‘Jazz Rocks’, was published in 2010. James Matthews, the South African poet and writer, in the foreword to the book observed that “…Lombard’s collection of photographs…is an ode to South Africa’s jazz musicians… Each and every lovingly taken photo displays its empathy with the music and the players.”

“Over the years I have spent so much time backstage that the space behind the music is a part of me. Many of the musicians I photographed were far more than just subjects to me. The musicians became my friends and family. We spent many hours honing our skills and teaching each other the politics of the arts.”
