This ongoing series of portraits of musicians performing live aims to capture the moment a musician is connected to their source of inspiration. Live music is an expression of soul and photography can be used as a tool to single out the instant a musician connects with the thing that drives them.
These photographs were taken using a small point and shoot camera. Using a camera without a viewfinder allows the photographer to stay engaged with the performance on stage so that, when it happens, that fleeting moment can be captured.

Madeleine Mann combines her life long love of photography and music in her portraits of live performers. For her, absorbing the performance and photographing it aren’t competing goals. Her ritual at every live performance is to make her way through the crowd to front where, using her small point and shoot Panasonic, she captures moments where artists reveal something of themselves.
