I spent my last two weeks in North-East of England. Mostly because of the classical music festival called "Northern Chords". It was a fantastic feeling to be all the time shoulder to shoulder with wonderful musicians and surrounded by enormous talent.
I decided that good photo-coverage of the such a great festival should include portraits of the artists, not only documentation. Here are some of them, a part of a big family called "Northern Chords"
