I studied music from an early age; theory, violin, recorders (soprano, alto and tenor) and as soon as my hands were big enough, the clarinet. 

This photographic study of my clarinet's components was taken on a 4x5 large format film camera in a studio setting. I represented the very broad dynamic range of the instrument, from a practically inaudible pianississimo to a significant fortississimoby way of a shallow depth of field and using the breadth of camera movements distinctive to large format cameras.
