I would love to evocatvely photograph as many musical artists and personalities, both young and old, as I can that have a local connection to the Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor (MI) area (minimum of 40) . I would interview them and tell the story of their musical lives combined with the image(s) I have captured to create a commemorative photographic biography. With the shrinking educational budgets and the reduction in funding to the creative arts, I see this as a way preserve a peice of our current events that will someday become our history. Please find a sample image of a local artist as a precusur to the type of images that will embody this project.
