    Artist Statement

    "I took this image in Seattle Washington, you find many street performers close to Pike market. This particular person who had white hair and a small, old and beat up piano was very connected with what he was playing. His face was happy and one with the music but his hands were telling a different story. The bandaids were not just covering his cracked fingertips but the sadness and desperation in his soul. What made it all look beautiful was the inspiration of those fingers playing the story of his life. At least I saw it this way...."
