“Mr.Sax” – Josif Lukenic left us

Yesterday I was informed that Josif Lukenic passed away last Sunday.

Since years I always saw him at the music school between his lessons having a break. He enjoyed standing outside smoking a cigarette and greeting everybody with a smile. Almost two years ago I asked him, if I could shoot some photos of him and he agreed. But for me it was difficult to find the right time and so time went on. Then one evening, in May last year - I was waiting for my daughter, he came out of his room, greeted me and asked me if I could shoot some photos of his Sax-Group for the music school anniversary. I agreed but asked him if he would be so kind to allow me to shoot a couple photos of him on the sofa. He agreed …and this is the result.

I’m sure many will miss this very charming musician and personality.

    A beautiful tribute to Mr. Lukenic, both honouring him and leaving family and friends a lovely image of what must have been his personality.
    May he rest in peace.

    Great portrait, Berthold, congratulations.

    a great character and a great loss, i'm sure! still remember that delightful smile and charisma from that other shot of yours! and this portrait here too is great!! love the wistful look in his eyes and felt hat – makes me think of him forever touring the clubs, a wanderer bringing music into people's lives! lg, sabine.
