MUSIC, THE NEW ESPERANTO
wINNING PROJECT - aDOBE aWARDS 2019
More than 200.000 babies are born every day in the world. The world gets bigger and bigger every day, and it might seem very difficult to find something in common with someone living on the other side of the planet, but if anything can connect anyone, independently of their culture, country, gender or age is music. You don't have to understand music to enjoy it, and for sure there are millions of tastes for music. It can make you feel happy or sad, thrill or activate you, among hundreds of emotions. How sad would a world without music be!
These photos, taken during 2018 and 2019, pretend to immortalize how music is present on our streets and all around the world. And it is extremely difficult to do so, because photography can't record sound, but it can capture emotions. Emotions of everyone, because music doesn't only move musicians, it also involves dancers, luthiers and above all, listeners. Listeners like you and me, listeners from all around the world, no matter from where they come or where they are going, no matter their level of education or their religion. The only thing that matters is that they are willing to open their hearts and enjoy listening to music, the new Esperanto.
