Musicians are magicians. They share a strange language and live on dark stages where light picks out their instruments and microphones. As the great poet Adrian Mitchell said of Charlie Parker; “He breathed in air, he breathed out light.”
The image to the right is the late David Crosby.
I have made a lot of images with musicians over the years and most of them owe a debt of gratitude to the stunning theatre photography of John Haynes and particularly his work with Samual Beckett.
