Janine Jansen and Feeling the Music

December 04, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

You may think music is a bit off topic, but I think anything that moves you can inspire other artistic endeavors. I just finished watching an excellent documentary on the violinist Janine Jansen.  The first five minutes or so, as she is on stage preparing for her part of the Beethoven Violin Concerto is extraordinary as she gets totally into the spirit of the sounds of the orchestra. And the rest of the movie is equally enthralling as she plays, performs, travels, markets, and all of the other aspects of the artistic life.  Perhaps our lives as photographers are not quite the same as Janine's, but inspiration can come from all kinds of places and people and art forms.
