Lancaster based composer and cellist Maja Bugge contacted me recently for some photos to accompany a performance she was giving.
Maja is collaborating with the MiN ensemble in Norway on a new music theatre piece based on the poems of Norwegian poet Harald Sverdrup.
Sverdrup lived from 1923-1992 and at the heart of his writing was a deep compassion and love for nature. The promoters wanted a slide show of black and white photos of various collaborators as a backdrop to the theatre piece. After Maja sent me over some of the musical pieces and some poems, I felt the ideal location for the shots would be one of the wooded areas of Williamson Park.
It was so gorgeous to shoot Maja in such a beautiful setting on a beautiful day, whilst she played her beautiful music.
