I've been looking at Larry Fink's portraits of jazz musicians and boxers lately, and was really inspired by his use of the square format in B&W. Here are some images I took this semester that I felt were more effective by using this aesthetic. Most of them are during True/False Film Festival at the Blue Note. I volunteered as a music liaison for the fest, and got to take some photos backstage when I wasn't doing anything. Switching to the B&W square, it feels nice to not worry about vivid color for once, as it seems to be such a big concern in concert and performance photography. There was a time when shapes and composition mattered much more, and I think those highly composed images equally tend to stick in your mind, if not more.
