The work of photographer David Hicks captures music and motion in striking and unusual ways. His shots are often taken from unexpected angles, or at times not often documented by standard pictures. See, for example, his shots of Cuban musicians, music and dance. “In Cuba,” says Hicks, “they live for their music. It’s everything to them, and they’re very good at it.” After the initial outlay of buying the instrument of choice,” he goes on, “it’s very cheap to enjoy. There’s not much in the way of other distractions so practise is easy.”
You can view Hicks’ fascinating photographs here. Says Hicks: “I tried to avoid the obvious photographs of the average Cuban bands doing their thing.” In many of his shots, he has caught suspended moments in time, just before the music starts, or just after it has finished. Viewing these pictures, you can almost feel the hum of vibrating strings, echoing into silence, or the stirring of possibility in the air.
