Chamber Orchestra

A photography studio in Germany goes deep inside the music.

These spacious photographs of concert-instrument interiors — their chambers, and not just figuratively — were taken as part of a promotional campaign for the Berlin Philharmonic. Photographers Andreas Mierswa and Markus Kluska, whose studio is in Munich, used different cameras and lenses for each shot. Kluska described the work of angling the large Sinar commercial camera just right above the organ pipes as “an extreme acrobatic challenge.”

If these photographs evoke the famous 1934 picture of Grand Central Station, it isn’t an accident: Art director Björn Ewers suggested a study of that image as the team first considered the project. The series won the gold prize for photography from the Art Directors Club of Europe in 2009.
