Charles Brooks - Architecture in Music

Sunday 5 June 2022 - Friday 17 June 2022

Lake House Arts is pleased to present Architecture in Music, a new suite of photographs by Auckland-based photographer Charles Brooke.

A fascinating look inside the interiors of instruments, Brooks uses a tilt-shift effect and specialised probe lenses to capture the hidden worlds inside of instruments.

A cellist since childhood, Brooks spent two decades performing around the world with orchestras. This experience sparked curiosity about the inner workings of the instruments surrounding him. The photographic process ignites a new appreciation of the craftsmanship which goes into the creation of Steinway pianos, flutes, saxophones and didgeridoos.
