The City Rings


Taking photographs of sound…

For this edition of The City Rings we are inspired by the recent Mozilla festival and the words of sound artist Klasien van de Zandschulp, “All around us people take photographs and we don’t even notice, but when we make field recordings of sounds, some people think it odd?”
Our digital photography club exchanged their cameras and smartphones for sound recorders, capturing moments through audio. Following the recording they took a photograph that represented that moment. Can you match some of the sounds to the images?

Many thanks go to Juan Felipe and Paul, our photography mentors who were openminded to capture visual images as sounds.

    Hi there,
    Great to see what you hear and to hear what you see.
    I was doing the same last summer in Ostend (Belgian Coastside) for a project and I love to look to pictures and guest how they would sound. Keep us posted!
