THE MUSES PROJECT

Breaking the Boundaries of Classical Music
A Personal Portrait Art Project
ΤΗΕ CONCEPT

With this personal project I wanted to find musicians from the classical music mantra and photograph them in a way that would break the stereotypes that come along with Classic Music, such as that classical music must be heard in music halls, it is accessible to few people, musicians must have a specific appearance and dressing code etc.

THE EXECUTION

In this project I wanted to take the classical music artists out of their usual performing spaces and throw them in everyday urban environments. I wanted them to be out in the open, accessible to anyone, and by this I wanted to show that classical music can exist and be enjoyed everywhere and by everyone. Besides the locations, the editing also played a big role, acting as a catalyst / amplifier for the overall goal and mood of this project.
