Linguistics Of Music: A Portrait

"Portraits should offer more than perfectly 
lit images of someone's face. 
They should open a window 
to that person's essence." 

-Rick Burnett Baker

We were privileged yesterday evening to have Cellist Kevin Maa join us at the Montanus Gallery for a photoshoot and impromptu 'concert'.  Kevin is an accomplished musician, and has been auditioning for entrance into Rochester NY's acclaimed Eastman School of Music.  (Visit these embedded links.)

Here are a few photos I took during our session.  These are not typical 'portraits' but rather what I call 'candid portraits' that attempt to peer deeper into a person's being.

Portraits should offer more than perfectly lit images of someone's face.  They should open a window to that person's essence.

We wish Kevin the very best in his artistic and professional endeavors!
