Portraits of Sound


In Portraits of Sound, Ernestine Ruben captured New York Philharmonic musicians as they relate to their instruments and to the sounds they produce, transforming the images to convey her love and perception of music. All sections of the orchestra are included -- strings, woodwind, brass and percussion. Ruben has exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the United States and Europe as a photographic artist using a variety of media.
