Improvised Voice Portrait

After my photo session with Elizabeth Willow she recomended me to Steve Boyland. Steve is an “improvised voice” artist. That is, he sings using the full range of the human voice, in what might be described as a classical  or operatic manner, but not with words just the musical resonance of his vocal ability. The music is always improvised in response to the environment, the acoustics of the room, the mood of the moment.

I spent an hour photographing him in and around the studios in the Bluecoat, Liverpool. Whilst I snapped away and asked questions, he talked and burst into an impromptu performance.
