f-holes of Man Ray

The magic of four strings instrument fascinates many but to me somehow it’s reminder of a Man Ray photograph as well. That famous 1924 picture Le Violon d’Ingres (Ingres’s Violin) which features a lady’s bare back adorned with two elegant f-holes,transforming her body into an instrument. I did this story of Rampur violin, manufactured in a narrow lane of Puranaganj and which is facing hard times because of entry of Chinese violin in Indian market. This video story can be accessed in video section.
