Last February I had an amazing opportunity through fellow photographer Karen Sacher, to work with a chroal ensemble called Conspirare, lead by Craig Johnson. The group had traveled to New York to preform around the city, and Karen and I followed them for a couple days, taking photos of their performances and rehearsals. I also did some portraits of Craig.
Listening to their group was extraordinary and deeply inspirational! Craig is a very kind person, and is so passionate about what he does. I loved watching him work and orchestrate the group with such love and intensity. It was a gift for me to witness an artist so connected to and passionate about his work and craft. I look back at this trip last February with such fond memories. Anytime your in New York creating work, it is wonderful, but to accompany Craig and his group, it was an experience I'll never forget.
