Accomplished soloists Lisette Kielson, Mirja Lorenz, Patrick O’Malley, and Laura Osterlund have joined

forces to explore the vast repertoire for recorder ensemble. I photographed these musical artists in 

conjunction with a series of live performances and upcoming recording sessions. Chicago Recorder Quartet

is a Chicago-based professional recorder quartet, and its mission is bringing early music to the contemporary

world and presenting contemporary music on one of the earliest known instruments. Creating varied programs

and performing diverse music from vocal and instrumental traditions as well as commissioned works,

Chicago Recorder Quartet leads audiences on journeys through many centuries to lands near and far.

As a Chicago portrait photographer, it’s always an honor to photograph somebody with celebrity status.

I had the pleasure of photographing actress and comedienne Nora Dunn in the Ukrainian Village neighborhood

of Chicago. She started her career at the legendary Second City comedy club in Chicago, then in the mid-1980’s

got tapped for Saturday Night Live and has appeared in dozens of films and TV shows. You might remember her 

for her roles in Working Girl, Zoolander, Bulworth, Curb Your Enthusiasm, the Nanny, or Entourage. Recently

she has appeared in a series of Clorox commercials.
