While working on my thesis and studying experimental animation, I have come across synesthesia quite a bit. For artists, the idea of sound merging as seamlessly as possible with sight has been a fascination of many throughout the years, including mine. (The movie Fantasia is a popular example of this.) So when I saw Andrew Brooks work (below), I had to stop and sit with it for a moment.
This is my latest commissioned project in which I have created a set of posters for the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. I was set the brief of creating landscape images which reflect the music that they are playing over the next season. It gave me the chance to hear some beautiful classical music and then find ways of representing the themes ideas and atmosphere through landscape photography.
There is lots more information on the project on my site at this link.
The project was a commissioned work in collaboration with UK creative agency Raw Design who used these images to create the posters for this seasons concerts.
