Event photography at its best. It was a real pleasure to be invited to photograph and create a visual archive of the recording sessions of Symphony # 2 and 5. Composed by the academy award winning Michael Nyman. Photographing the recording process was a real inspiration for me, shooting everything from the sound engineers, to the meetings between the musicians and Michael Nyman.
I also had the privilege to be invited to photograph the premiere of his new symphonies. The World Orchestra conducted by Josep Vicent managed to record these two symphonies in record time. Recently Charles Padley, the record label manger contacted me for permission to use eight of my photographs for the album: Michael Nyman Symphonies. Of course I gave permission and got a signed copy of his album for my efforts!
The album cover photo was taken by Michael Nyman himself.
Client: Michael Nyman
