Royal Photographic Society - The Essence of Music, by Douglas May FRPS

The Essence of Music by Douglas May was published in issue 58 of the Royal Photographic Society's Contemporary Photography journal. This fascinating photographic project highlights the collaboration between Michael and the English luthier Sam McClaren. Within the article, May discusses the three essential elements of music: a composition, an instrument and a player. Within his wonderful photographs, May uses the Five Bagatelles of William Walton to highlight the element of the composition, Sam McClaren and his guitar as the instrument and Michael as the player.
