JR Delia photographs

JR Delia began his career as a musician. He learned string bass at age seven, and later trained with the New York Philharmonic’s former principal bassist, earned a Masters in music at Yale, and played nearly 2000 concerts. Then, in 1995, a good friend introduced him to the art of photography.

Completely fascinated by the camera, JR began assisting some of the world’s best fashion, still life, and celebrity photographers. On his own, he experimented heavily with a variety of unconventional shooting techniques and in 2004 he moved to Milan to begin his own photography career. Making his way to Paris, and then London, JR eventually began shooting regularly for clients including Harper’s Bazaar and Tank Magazine.

Now back home in New York, JR is showing a collection of his early work – long exposures of NYC venues, many of them taken just blocks away from Life Cafe – as a tribute to the city, the space of his transition from the world of music to a world of pictures.
