Photographer's Note

There is currently an artistic project taking place simultaneously in London and NYC called "Play me, I'm yours". Here in NYC there are sixty pianos, scattered across public places in all five boroughs. Anyone can sit down and play.

British artist Luke Jerram started this project in 2008, and since then street pianos have appeared in the UK, Brazil, Australia, Spain, and now the USA. He wanted to see what would happen if pianos were made available to the public. The result has been all kinds of spontaneous performances.

I captured this man tentatively fingering the piano located in Greeley Square in Manhattan, which is two blocks away from Herald Square and Macy's department store.
