A New Covenant

         Some friends who were representing musical talents had me on their list to shoot for musicians, singing groups, and in the case of A New Covenant, a gospel group.

          They arrived to me on a Sunday morning, after church (when they could all be available at the same time), and when they were setting up, changing, checking hair, and makeup, it was like an open casting call. People everywhere.   They came in several vans and we drove to the Cloisters in Upper Manhattan.

          In shooting, I wanted a wide range of images that revealed the energy, the exuberance, and joy that they brought to their performances.  Their changes of clothing were from their non-church performances with resplendent Sunday church wear, to zoot suit-like men’s wear.
