Faces Behind the Music is a series of black and white portraits of contemporary Australian singers, songwriters and musicians. The photographer, utilises low-key lighting, which gives a dramatic focus on light and shadow, compared to traditional black and white photographs. The majority of the portraits were shot in the subjects’ homes or surrounds, allowing the artists to portray themselves as they wished to be. In this series, Budge wanted to create something different than the usual Promo, On Stage or Back Stage shot - aiming to capture the person, not the celebrity.
