Midori & Ozgur Aydin at Stanford's Bing Concert Hall

This past Wednesday Midori Goto and Ozgur Aydin took the Bing Concert Hall Stage for a fantastic show for the Stanford community. As a photographer for Lively Arts, I was situated in the recording studio for the entirety of the performance so as to not disrupt the delicate nature of the concert. This presents so interesting photography challenges in that I am accustomed to moving around the venue for differing viewpoints. The concert was incredible with Midori and Ozgur playing Bach, Beethoven and Brahms consecutively. 

Stanford Lively Arts Merce Cunningham Dance Event

I have also started working for Stanford Lively Arts this year as a photographer, which means I get to go to even more awesome Stanford arts events. Courtesy of Lively Arts, this event on October 31, 2011 had Stanford dancers dance excerpts from several of Merce Cunningham's works, formatted as a Cunningham Event, with special guests Alastair Macaulay, Chief Dance Critic of the NY Times, and Carol Teitelbaum, former MCDC company member and teacher of this MinEvent. The photos barely do the fantastic student dancers justice. Photo slideshow embedded below, as well as on my photography site here and on Lively Art's Facebook page here.
