Stereotypes - What are you listening to?

Photographer's Name: 
Dan Gray

We stopped head-phoned strangers in the street and asked them what they were listening to, shot video portraits of them and cut it together with their music. We expected to observe a link between music, fashion and culture, and it's an interesting game to play as you watch this film - can you predict a person by their music? What was equally interesting was the connection between music and mood. Headphones can offer a world of comfort and control within the disconnected and chaotic environment of a busy city. Far from tuning-out of the world, we found our subjects were wanting to tune in and be tuned-in to. Music not only provides a soundtrack to city life, it also provides a soul.
