INSTRUMENTHEAD is a photographic series created to tell the story of the musicians without showing their faces. You’re invited to be a part of the making of Instrumenthead – a fine art hardcover book that presents musicians in a way you’ve never seen before. “Exhibiting my Instrumenthead portraits has been a dream come true.” says Weintrob “With your help, I hope to publish a full color fine art book. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Music Maker Relief Foundation, a non-profit organization that preserves and promotes the rich musical traditions of the American South. Also, non-profits, Tipitina’s Foundation, New Orleans Musicians Assistance Foundation, and Rock the Earth will share in a portion of the proceeds and 5 percent of the money raised will go to charity.”
New Orleans music icon Allen Toussaint says about InstrumentHead: “When you mix art and music together like you’ve done here, it’s just phenomenal. It doesn’t get much better than this.”
