Welcome to Life Songs, an interpretive project where a group of photographers take a song, and create inspired images of their family from the song. Here is my contribution to Simon and Garfunkel’s Sound of Silence. Although tempted to do a more literal translation of the meaning, I decided to take an opportunity to explore the more literal sound of silence. I had gone out one early morning to shoot in the fog, my two little ones came along. Normal everyday sounds seemed absorbed by the moisture in the air, and while I found it peaceful and cleansing to have my senses limited to a small area, my boys found it terrifying. I took the opportunity to record their response to the altered reality, and then took some liberties with interpretive editing. Hope you enjoy.
At the end of the post, watch for the link to then next photographer participating this month.
