It’s not every day that you stumble across something as wonderful as the photographs of David Hicks, whose work captures music and motion in striking and unusual ways. Hicks’ shots are often taken from unexpected angles, or at times not often documented by standard pictures. See, for example, his visual documents of Cuban musicians, music and dance. “In Cuba,” says Hicks, “they live for their music. It’s everything to them, and they’re very good at it.” After the initial outlay of buying the instrument of choice,” he goes on, “it’s very cheap to enjoy. There’s not much in the way of other distractions so practise is easy.”
You can view Hicks’ fascinating photographs here. Says Hicks: “I tried to avoid the obvious photographs of the average Cuban bands doing their thing.” In many of his shots, Hicks has succeeded in capturing wonderfully suspended moments in time, just before the music starts, or just after it has finished.
