Sights of Music

Senior Project

As a play on the Sound of Music, this photo series is called “Sights of Music” that takes a close look at the construction and mechanics of musical instruments. While instruments produce music that people can hear, listeners often may not know what goes into creating the noise they are so familiar with. The photographs in the series were taken in a studio under careful setup and lighting to create the most sharp, clean and beautiful images possible. Four instruments were highlighted in the series, including a violin, viola, electric bass, and ukulele. This series aims to bring attention to the mechanical details that make each instrument unique and what ultimately is responsible for creating the sounds we find so familiar.
