Esmond Edwards

Esmond Edwards (October 29, 1927[1] – January 20, 2007)[2] was an American photographer, record producer, and recording engineer. He worked for the jazz label Prestige Records during the 1950s and early 1960s. He was originally hired by founder Bob Weinstock as a photographer for the record label. He was a trail-blazing African-American, as very few recording industry executives were from minorities.[2] He took over the supervision of recording sessions as the Prestige label's success grew.
