Herman Leonard (3/6/1923 – 8/14/2010)

Herman Leonard, originally from Allentown, PA, was one of those photographers who helped make jazz “the epitome of cool.”  He shot this awesome photo of Billie Holiday cooking a steak for her dog.

Check out some of his other photographs at The Morning Call and Time [update: and Slate].
