Lebrecht photographer Suzie Maeder will be exhibiting a selection of her abstract music photographs at Bernheimer Gallery in Lucerne. The exhibition, Seeing Music, opens 10 August 2017 to coincide with the Lucerne Festival.
Maeder’s work has a particular focus on the world of classical music, working with such musical greats as Rostropovich, Bernstein, Copland, Boulez and many more. The works in Seeing Music arise out of Maeder’s visualisation of the music itself, playing with shadows and the physical form of musical instruments.
The pianist Evgeny Kissin said of her work: “Looking at Suzie’s images of musical instruments and scores opens up a completely new dimension of listening to music with one’s eyes. Her pictures are a constant surprise and reminder that perception is infinite.”
