Music: a series

Photographs and Motion by Daniel Sigg

Working in series: the art of the personal project and sharing it with others

A fun way to create as well as to share images is by compiling them (and thinking of them) in SERIES, or a compilation of images. Music is a recurring and loved subject not only for me, but hopefully many of you, so I thought I kick off the series with music related imagery.  

The imagery was taken of musical instruments I own, as well as some musicians I photographed (and filmed) in the US and Europe over the past few months. I hope you like it.
