Benjamin Salman for Seattle Met


Many thanks to Jane Sherman for asking me to photograph 19 year old concert pianist Benjamin Salman for Seattle Met's October edition of Quote/Unquote.  Below is the image that ran along with two of my favorites from the day.  The original idea was to shoot a picture of Benjamin playing a real piano in an alley -- but that idea quickly came to a halt when we factored in the cost of a piano mover's time.  I guess a toy piano is the next best thing.
