Sustained Investigation Portfolio 2020-2021

Through my sustained investigation inquiry, I wanted to explore the intersection of music and photography. Concert photography is usually my main focus, but since the pandemic presented many unique challenges, I was unable to continue. I decided, instead, to visualize movie scores. I listened to my favorite movies' scores and tried to express through my photos what each song made me feel or see. After listening to each song many times, I started visualizing scenes and images accompanying each song. Through these photographs, I aimed to

capture the visual, or feeling that I felt represented each song. This was a new and different way for me to express music through my photography, rather than capturing moments at live music events. Photos 1-13 are in order, coordinating with my sketchbook inquiry and research on slides 14 and 15. Each photo is the result of meticulous research and planning. I shot these from winter of 2020 through spring of 2021 from places throughout the east coast from Connecticut to New York to Florida.
