This is my dear friend Jean Pierre. He is a composer and orchestrator from Chile residing in Boston.
“After studying classical guitar in Chile, Jean Pierre d’Alençon moved to Boston to enter Berklee College of Music, where he successfully completed his degree in Film Scoring. He has been working as a professional guitarist, composer and orchestrator, and his compositions include music for short films, promo videos, tango recitals and orchestras” www.jeandalencon.com
Today I spent the day going through a lot of work, old and new, trying to figure out what to add to my portfolio. It was refreshing to go back and take a look at a good chunk of my history as an artist, and I got to dust off a few pieces worth of publication. In that pile of forgotten work I came across this piece that I very much enjoy. This is my friend Colleen and this is how I see her. Yes, she is a gorgeous fairy tale creature who never ceases to show her true colors, even when the weather turns gray and gloomy.
A couple of weeks ago I had the great pleasure to photograph a very talented string quartet. They are part of an emerging Video Game Music group, and I am thrilled to be part of their journey by photographing them.
This is amazing and gorgeous violin player Tomoko.
I was going through a bunch of photos I have on my labtop, and I found this panorama I made during my first year at Nesop. I think it is kind of cool. It is a lot of fun making panoramas with funky stuff going on in them. 🙂
I am going to keep looking through my old photographs and hopefully I’ll come across more nice forgotten ones.
These images are part of phase-number-one of The Colleen Project, as I am calling it since it was because of Colleen that I started it. I don’t really know how many phases there will be, but this project, if successful, will be part of a series of images born from itself, which means that it is thought to be the beginning of a bigger project, and every big idea morphs and evolves as the artist solves the problems she encounters.
It took me a little more than 2 weeks to come to a comfortable place with these images, and now I believe I can move on to the next phase. This is why I am posting them, and because the finished result is so far from what you can see right now, Colleen and the rest of the world are going to see these photographs for the first time at the same time (I hope you are OK with this, Colleen (These are far from finished. I promise.). ).
