Maximum Harpist

An iconic image of The Who‘s Pete Townshend and his trademark “windmilling” guitar-playing style might seem like an odd starting point for promotional photographs of a harpist, now I come to think of it…

But Fran of “Poppy Harp” is no ordinary harpist (as you might have seen in previous posts). She’s the total antithesis of the traditional image of a classical harpist – you know, hair in a bun, twin-set, pearls, sensible shoes… She’s definitely on the rock and roll end of the harp-playing spectrum and I wanted to try a photograph which reflected that. So inspired by this classic mid-sixties promo poster for The Who…

…I came up with these…


Great fun. Many thanks to Fran for being such a great sport. See her website here
