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.”
