life with music
I am fascinated by how music impacts our lives. The way a song sticks in our heads, the way music makes us feel, the way a song makes us react, and the way sharing that experience with others changes us. Independent of language and background, music has the ability to speak to every single human on this planet and we all understand it irrespective of who we are or where we come from. It can make all of us want to turn the volume up to 11 and just let go. We all feel the message behind the notes and behind the lyrics whether we consciously understand it or not. Music is inside all of us. It's a fun challenge to try to capture the impact it has on human culture, as well as the ubiquitous understanding of sound through photography - an inherently silent medium.
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of fuel. Sentimental people call it inspiration, but what they really mean is fuel. I have always needed fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio."
