I love violins. To be sure, I couldn’t even begin to play one. But the sounds and the shapes and the old wood… They are wonders to behold. And, to get to the trivia question, they have been around about 500 years. The modern violin is said to have been designed by Andrea Amati in the 1500s.
The violin pictured here is almost new by comparison. It wasn’t crafted until the late 1700s. This is from a shoot I did in Central Park, and when she told me how old the violin was I suddenly got very nervous.
Going mostly off-topic… if you would like to visit Central Park, and I suppose the rest of NY is ok too, now is a great time to schedule flights. I just booked a round trip ticket for February from Seattle to NY for $216.60.
