Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Street Art

“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!

  1. 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, 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.

  2. 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.
