This is a photo I took of Grammy Award winning conductor/composer Maria Schneider back in 1999. I have always liked this image and was always frustrated with it in the darkroom. I could never get the background to to dark enough for my taste and yet leave detail in the foreground. I got PS this year, and finally get closer to what I wanted. Previously, I cropped out the whole right side of the picture and printed it along with some others in the series a triptych, that I gave to Maria on her Carnegie Hall debut.

Her mother stole them out of her apartment.

Aparently they are prominently displayed in her living room in Windom, MN. Somehow, I find that satisfying.

I think the image is great and would be considered photojournalism if the person was immediately identifiable as a celebrity or if the image was used in a publication with her ID in the caption. As it stands alone on a print, it is definitately art (in my opinion).

As a former photojournalist, this is pretty much deffinately art. The reason, IMO, is that it is strong as it is without text. If one added text to it, the editor of the circulation would want to know where the orchestra or band was....

As art, it could sit on a cover of a musical related publication. Front page of a section or cover of USA Today....probably not?

I like it as art.....IMO
