The Music Makers

To the crypt gallery at St. Martin in the Fields last night for a lovely exhibition called The Music Makers which combines photographs by Joshua Hayes with works by artist Philip Surey. The exhibition is inspired by music and its makers and Joshua Hayes has photographed a wide variety of those involved in creating music, both the performers, composers and the craftsmen who create the instruments. Hayes has photographed three composers; myself, James Whitbourn and Johann Sebastian Bach (the stained glass window from St. Sepulchre without Newgate). And Philip Surey has produced a sequence of works based on these three composers' works, with painted cotton hangings and slate carvings.

For me one of the highlights of the exhibition has to be Joshua Hayes highly poetic photographs taken in the workshops of various instrument makers. You can see more of his photographs at his website. The exhibition runs until 13 April 2014
