Conversations with Creative Souls

Pray Me a Guitar

Gumbootspearlz Photography


What to photograph when working with a musician?
Their connection to their instrument (guitar, voice etc)
close ups of hands

How to encourage them to forget the camera is there?
Yarning about life,
respecting their creative space,
just being quiet,
melding into the background
if that is what they wish
or speaking of music
in life

What is discovered?
The prayer of artistry
as someone praises the world
through their guitar

A big thank you to songwriter/ musician Melinda for being my model for this work.
Melinda may give me some quotes from her beautiful songs to put with this later,
but for now some general quotes from music.
