dumb photos

February 9, 2009 13:04

What really annoys me recently are publicity photos of  violinists, many of them brilliant and famous artists, who are holding their instrument in the most unlikely positions. Over their shoulder? Playing peek a boo from behind it? and other ridiculously cloying poses. Really bugs me, somehow.... Remember those old b&w photos of concert artists playing in 7th position on the G string? Yeesh!
