Selected images from my current book project 'La mélodie de la violette'. I was inspired by an accordion player I met on the street. I was fascinated by the mechanics, sound, movement and grace of his instrument- the way a narrative was formed by the combination of sound and movement. The story tells of a little girl and her musical journey. Drawing street musicians on location throughout this Autumn, it became an aspiration of mine to highlight the value of this art form. I would like to communicate a scene of appreciation and encouragement of this art form to my young audience.
