“Art is an evolutionary act. The shape of art and its role in society is constantly changing. At no point is art static. There are no rules.” ― Raymond Salvatore Harmon
My daughter’s partner is working on establishing himself as a club music producer under the label Houseium. He asked me and my sister to do a photo shoot for his promotional material, so we went into Eugene, OR to find some colorful street art as a backdrop for his portraits.
I have become one of Houseium’s top fans on Facebook. I am really impressed by Jake’s ambition to learn to apply new technical skills, new dance skills, and new musical skills to his art. I have a BA in Voice Performance. I studied Classical music and performed my senior recital in four languages, interpreting four different period styles of music from the Baroque era to the 20th Century. Jake is just beginning to learn to read music. But he knows what he likes and what sounds good to him. I have to admit that I don’t listen to his genre of music much or his music in particular. Unless he’s putting on a dance party for the family! Then I dance seamlessly through his array of a couple of hours of music and enjoy every minute!
Thanks to Patti for hosting this week’s challenge and choosing a subject that is new to me and very fun!
What a great story to go with your street art.
Hi, Priscilla. I agree with Pat. A great story to go along with your images. I really like the one of Jake smiling. You did a great photo shoot with him. I didn’t know you studied voice! So talented. I’m always off key. 😱
Thanks, Patti! I was so excited to have something for this topic because I usually do nature photography.
It worked out great, Priscilla. 😀
Great work Priscilla – the street art is amazing and you’ve captured your daughter’s partner perfectly. Sounds like you have some amazing musical background too!!
Thanks, Tina! It’s been tough not being able to sing during the pandemic, but I just got into a choir here in my new home town. We’ll be doing a December concert, masked.
Great choice of murals Priscilla. They are so colorful and make the perfect backdrop for your daughter’s partner’s music. You also did excellent portraits to put in front of the murals.
Great choice of background murals. Good luck to your daughter’s partner.
The dance party to come sounds fun!
And the photo shoot was well done and I like the tattoos and how they also fit right in with the clothes and street art!
We’ve already had two dance parties, and they were an absolute blast! 🙂
Sounds like what true living is all
About – body movement and togetherness and joy
Wonderful story and combo, Priscilla! You really did a good job! Now I’ll have to find this on facebook…
Love these images .. so different for you
Right? But so fun to do. 🙂
