Music is my first true love. As far back as I can remember I loved to sing and to perform music and I even took a turn at teaching music. I don’t get to sing anymore, but I now photograph musical artists as part of another passion; photography.
Music is a universal language, every culture has music and it brings people together in celebrations no matter what the reason. I have learned something significant in being able to photograph concerts; people are happy when they are listening to music. I photograph everything from Country to Hip Hop and I have found that people of all colors can come together, love each other and enjoy being in the same place with each other. Last night was proof that multi-cultures can work together and treat each other like humans are supposed to. It was refreshing to be away from the political crap of division and to just be happy humans; A rainbow of humans out enjoying music.
In perfect harmony
I’d like to hold it in my arms
And keep it company
All standing hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills
For peace through out the land
(That’s the song I hear)”
