Musician Portrait inspired from Greek Cretan Music
Every photograph is document. There is a story behind every portrait, usually it is an interesting personality that makes the documentation stronger. I love shooting artist cause they are doing interesting things giving their life or live through their art. Musicians are not like actors. They aren’t such powerful in posing and such expressive. You have to combine their body, character and their instrument. I designed this portrait of the young musician Mardikoula Lorentzou to be minimal and expressional. The Crete instrument “Lira” has a nice shape so I want it to be on the light side coming out from the shadow. The photoshoot took place in my studio and was for her interview in AeginaNews.
