Inside a 1755 Guadagnini

Recommended Posts

Last weekend I had the opportunity to photography this truly rare instrument:  

Crafted in 1755 by the renowned luthier Giovanni Battista Guadagnini in Milan, it's in amazing condition, with almost no repairs save for a beautifully crafted soundpost patch. This exceptional instrument is part of the NZSO Foundation’s collection, following a generous donation from Ainsley Walter.  


The photograph was achieved through the use of advanced medical endoscopy lenses and high-resolution Lumix cameras. In a meticulous process, I combined 613 individual images to craft an optical illusion that amplifies the internal space of the violin, presenting it with the grandeur of a concert hall.
