There is truth in candid moments... little slices of time where your subject remains unaware of you and your camera. My portrait subjects are often inside their own minds; caught up in the truth of moments which when spread out make their day. I call it "Gestalt Photography" - I never look to create the story being told; instead I trust my instincts to guide me to the proper moment where a story can be revealed.
The special relationship between some musicians and their instrument of choice can evolve into much more than the simple choice of this or that instrument to be the conduit for expression.
For some their instrument can become an extension of their body, a perfect blend of tonality, playability, and comfort. For these musicians their chosen instrument becomes their closest friend and a source of emotional comfort.
