Leonard Weiss - have harp will travel !

Leonard kindly brought himself and his harp to my studio. What an instrument to lug around? But someone has to do it and Lenny plays beautifully. He also a Carillonist here in Canberra and composer.

What an interesting instrument the harp is to photograph. Whatever you do it is going to dominate an image, naturally. But how do you bring something fresh to shots of the harp, or any instrument for that matter? Is the shot about the instrument or the musician? Whatever, one of the functions of a shot is to make people look in the first place which is why I've chosen this particular image. But then I hope there is something else to look at when I have your attention.

With these shots getting around poor Lenny might not get any more engagements. But it may reflect how he feels at times, sitting in an orchestra waiting for his part...
