A forthcoming documentary film about the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble (HBE) is to use some of my still photographs. HBE are a 9-piece, Chicago-based brass group, which caused a storm at UK festivals during 2009 and I was lucky enough to take photographs of their brilliant live performance at Womad Festival at Charlton Park, Malmesbury. A New York based film-maker called Reuben Atlas saw some of the images, got in contact and a deal was made. I also supplied a limited edition print of the image below for an exhibition at a gallery space in New York.
Below are some images from the private view and launch, where the band performed in the shadow of the Empire State Building.
