In Memory (a photographt project inspired ny the music of Arvo Part)

I took this shot at St. James Cemetery, Toronto, Ontario. One of the sources of my inspiration for my photography is the music of Arvo Part, one of my favourite classical music composers. My inspiration for this image came from Arvo Part’s very moving classical piece, Cantus In Memory of Benjamin Britten. This music pierces my soul.

    Lovely words and photo, Virgilio. “This music pierces my soul” – Wow, this must be some amazing music. Blessings, my friend.

    Beautiful music, photographic interpretation, as always, perfect. Music has the power to move us in ways that nothing else can, as also, how we see, with our heart and not our head.
