“As a classical musician myself (masters degree in cello) I had grown very tired of the conservative and traditional perception on classical music,” said the 28 year old Denmark-based artist. “Every time I saw publicity on classical music, I saw the same type of photos which, in my opinion, keeps people who do not already know about classical music away from the concerts. Classical music is so much more than what those photos told.
Music is something you hear, feel and respond to. For me it can calm me down and at the same time wake a lot of energy and inspiration in me. So the combination of aesthetic shades and raw energy is what I often try to show in my photos.” – Nikolaj Lund
