MUNY I - George Grey by carvinganish MUNY I - George Grey by carvinganish
MUNY Series

there's really no point trying to take beautiful scenics living in new york during the cold winter. i have been struggling to come up with photographic inspiration, but i finally got an idea. to document the musicians under new york (MUNY).

new yorkers - i would love it if you could give me suggestions if you have a favorite musician under new york :)

this image is the first in the series. george grey - singer, musician and songwriter playing at his favorite 42nd street location.

hope you like it :D
DD: thank you for all the kind words and fav's guys. i know i haven't replied to all the comments but i have made an effort to answer any questions or address any "advanced critiques". thanks again for making my day really great! :boogie:

Daily Deviation

Given 2005-03-06
Out of the gallery of an unknown but talented photographer is MUNY I - George Grey by *carvinganish. A brilliant capture of a subway musician, the depth and emotion carried in this image is simply wonderful. If I stare at it long enough I can hear the guitar. Be sure to check out the rest of this deviants gallery. ( Featured by Moonbeam13 )

I think i get a sense of the passion the artist has for his music from this photo. The framing and exposure is great in this photo.

Joey Murphy plays at the 6th Av. L train Stop, hes so much fun to watch, he gets so into it.

I'm working on a similar project, we should talk.

that's a truly excellent picture, doing research in 'street musicians' and stumbled across your page, great work with the high contrast and big dark area

like just about everyone else it seems, at a glance it reminded me of bono!

wha, beautiful photo, the darkness of the picture I think really emphasises the overall mood as well as the musicians face and hand - what sort of shutter speed did you use? The lights in the background lift the blackness just enough to add extra depth and keep the photo from a blocked colour. Wonderful, wonderful work.
