Sara Naim is a Brooklyn-based photographer. After graduating from the London College of Communication with a B.A. in Photography in 2010, she went to intern at Ryan McGinley’s studio in New York. Her work has most recently been shown at the Photokina fair in Cologne, Germany and The Third Line gallery in Dubai. Of this series, ‘Beethoven-Moonlight Sonata’ she writes, ‘This body of work looks at translating sound into a photographic image. Ludwig Van Beethoven’s symphony vibrates through milk. He composed this piece in the early 1800’s for his blind pupil and lover, Giuletta Gucciardi. Gucciardi said to Beethoven that she wished she could see the moonlight. Beethoven then composed a piece about the moonlight’s reflection off Austria’s Lake Lucerne, called Moonlight Sonata’.
