After having contributed with his music to the success of many films, the English composer Michael Nyman decided to become a director and photographer himself. Thus, over the past few years he has been taking photographs all over the world: the skyscrapers of Barcelona, abandoned objects in the streets of New York, a detail of a shoe snatched in Tokyo, passers-by viewed from a hotel room in Mantua or the faces of people ignoring the colourful advertising of a McDonald’s in Madrid. Shot just before or after his concerts, the photographs in the exhibition were structured according to different visual and musical rhythms.
On display were 16 single photographs 43,5×35,5 and 12 118×45 cm panels with some photographs mounted following the visual flow of the images.
