Beautiful Classical Music Photos

Posted at 2:13 PM on May 10, 2012 by Emily Reese

Musician and photographer Nikolaj Lund created a gorgeous slideshow of his photography of classical musicians.

The Danish Lund has his master's degree is in cello performance, so he knows his subject. Additionally, you can read more about his thoughts on doctoring photos here.

There are a fair amount of folks I didn't recognize, but there are wonderful photos of clarinetist Martin Fröst, violinist Isabelle van Keulen and trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth's all-female group tenThing.

Take a few moments to view the slides. I initially figured I'd look at the first few and move on to something else, but I got drawn in by the imagery and have now looked at all the pictures several times.
