Photographs from a Voice Recital + Thoughts on Courage
As I looked through the photographs of the singers, I thought of my own time in music. All the different singers and manners of singing I've encountered. The photographs seem like the beginning of a typology of vocalists - all in front of that open condenser mic. I like the look of that.
The expressions of concentration and focus on preparation are coming through really strongly - I can almost feel them crackling!
Another great post, Stella - thank you. 😊
I love how Courage comes from a French word for “heart.” I think it takes wholeheartedness to share what the soul yearns to express through our art making. Trusting the process is such a big part of this. Abundant Courage to you, Stella, as you embark on a new year of the creative life!
What a beautiful idea to capture the moment before the singing or the moments after during the applause.
Love these photographs, love the square crop, love the stillness in the moment but the dynamic look on the performer's eyes. You can nearly hear their thoughts. Beautifully resolved, Stella!
