One of the privileges of my life is photographing live performance: operas, dance, and the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis. Violin.org shows the upcoming events. I've been commissioned to photograph each phase of this competition in September. I need to be nearly silent and zoom in on the action. My Publicity page has key moments from the last competition in 2010. The gold medal is only one of the outstanding prizes that draws the best talent from around the world. Last week I did studio "portraits" of the medal which is graced by the likeness of Josef Gingold. Here is a glimpse. I hope you feel the allure and will attend some of the competition. If you do, find me and say "Hi".
