Music obviously has the power to inspire. How about the instruments themselves? What might a piano look like from the inside? How about the interior of a standup bass or a violin?
Photographer Charles Brooks explored these things, and revealed amazing results.
His series, Architecture in Music, gives us a wondrous perspective, making these relatively cramped spaces seem cavernous and immense.
From a hand carved Australian didgeridoo to a massive Steinway piano, Brooks utilizes specialized probe lenses and high resolution cameras to create these highly unique views. A truly one-of-a-kind look at the spaces within instruments.
