Seether photographed at PC Ricard and Son Theater in New York City on May 18, 2011. Copyright © 2011 Chris Owyoung. (Chris Owyoung /

Here’s one of my favorite shots from my recent shoot with Seether. This photo was taken amongst dozens of pianos that are being transformed into musical art installations as part of the Pop-up Pianos project. Pop-up Pianos is a public arts project founded by Sing For Hope that places pianos throughout the public spaces of New York City. The pianos, which can be played by anyone who passes, have been filling the NYC with music for years.

Sing for Hope is an amazing non-profit organization that mobilizes professional artists – from classical musicians to photographers to Broadway performers – in volunteer service programs that benefit schools, hospitals, and communities.

If you’re an artist interested in making a difference, you should definitely learn more about Sing for Hope and consider volunteering.
