Antony De Gennaro
What used to be called Rock ‘n’ Roll, Peter Sellers & Monty Python took me over the top. My high school art teacher encouraged my interest in photography but said I would have to choose between music or visual art. I moved to Seattle where I have been merging sound and visuals ever since. I studied music at Cornish and began a lifelong "do it yourself" approach. You know you have lived in a state where idealistic fantasy meets draconian nightmares when you hear rock stars on the loud speakers at the airport telling you to tow the line for security.
It's amazing how imagination can affect our physical reality.
