A musician only feels good when he joins his instrument... but before playing, he has to re-tame it each time (as if it were the first time). Here, the pianist seems to be trying to soothe his instrument so that the two become one, offering themselves completely to each other, in order to produce the most symbiotic music possible... What I appreciate particularly in photography is this capacity to freeze a moment which, taken in the whirlwind of the daily life could not be noticed and thus pass unnoticed... The greatest quality of a photographer in my opinion is to be observant

Samuel Mélia was born in France, starting with studies in jazz music (saxophone), he then turned to photography. Samuel appreciates photographs of different genres, so he enjoys the work of Andreas Gursky as much as Annie Leibovitz, Mark Seliger or Sebastião Salgado.
