Mozart Reimagined – Don Giovanni

28 Aug

Mozart Reimagined by Tyson Vick will feature photos illustrating Mozart’s “Don Giovanni”, one of the greatest works of art created by man.

Mozart Reimagined showcases nearly 100 photos that bring to life Mozart’s operas through photography. I spent a decade building props and sets, meeting models and photographing across the country to showcase what Mozart’s music has meant to me. The book also features essays written about each opera from my own unique perspective. The book humorously points out plot-holes, gives insight into past and present performances, recites a little bit of History and overflows with my own passion for the music of Mozart.

The Don Giovanni photos are also an award winning set of photos (3rd place WPPI) and remain some of the most popular photos featured in the book.

Here’s an excerpt from the book which accompanies the Don Giovanni pictures:

“One thing you will notice thematically, and this is the whole point of the opera, is that every chance someone has for vengeance or justice is thwarted by circumstance. Every attempt at resolving the issue of abuse, rape, or murder is stunted. All the characters are left in an eternal state of turmoil, as things get more and more frustrating. Don Giovanni gets away with everything, and there is nothing these people can do to find relief from their pain.”

Model and actor Joshua Kuehl portrays Don Giovanni with a whole slew of extras. You can see some behind-the-scenes images here.

You can also view posts for both the men’s costumes and women’s costumes on their own pages. I built them all, so go check ’em out.

I’m going to be giving you a preview of photos from every chapter of Mozart Reimagined over the next month, and then it will be time for pre-orders. I will be launching pre-orders on Kickstarter on September 14th, 2015! Until then, I wanted to give you a glimpse of some of the photos and excerpts from the book so you can see what’s in store! Subscribe to the blog for every update, or check back on September 14th for the launch of the book.
