Uncle Lionel, Monk & More with Instrument Heads

NPR’s “A Blog Supreme” features a slideshow of photos by Michael Weintrob, who manipulated a number of photos of musicians to replace their heads with their instruments. Among Weintrob’s subjects are Uncle Lionel Batiste, Kirk Jospeph, Bill Summers and Big Chief Monk Boudreaux. You can see his work here, and more at Weintrob’s site, where you can also find an explanation and an interview with him about the series conducted by NPR’s Josh Jackson.

    Hi there

    Thanks for mentioning my project. I wanted to let you know that none of the images are manipulated. This is the way that the image looks in camera. Please let me know if you would like to discuss the process sometime
