About

My name is Tyson Vick. I am an artist. My main focus is photography.

In the Summer of 2007, I started illustrating the operas of Mozart through photography. I am working on finishing this project.

I started this blog in order to chronicle the things I’ve learned like textiles, historical costuming, wig styling, millinery(!), and photoshop (Corel) techniques, and to show off the things I make for the project.

Mozart wrote 24 operas, three of which are fragments, in addition he wrote 2 cantatas and 2 other musical dramas. There are 29 plays that I will be illustrating in total. I am illustrating one scene from each act of every play, whether Mozart completed the setting or not. This will yield around 100 images. My goal is to publish a book when the project is finished!

In order to finish the project I need:

Translators and Texts

  • An Agent or Publisher
  • A Translation of the Act two Synopsis of L’oca Del Cairo (Italian to English)
  • Around $5,000 (Buy my stuff on Etsy! to support my project!)

The life’s blood of the project is the nearly one hundred men and women, boys and girls, who have joined me on my adventure as models, stylists and assistants. I could not do it with out their interest and passion. Thank you all!
