Connor the Barefoot Musician

Who is the Barefoot Musician?

Connor is the Barefoot Sax Player, aka The Barefoot Musician!  He is a 13 year old boy living in New Orleans, LA.  Connor performed live at Arabi Visual Arts for the opening reception of “Extremities: An Exhibition of Hands and Feet.”  Connor is a regular model for Christopher Ryan’s concepts and can be found on this page with the tag “Connor“.




Why barefoot?

Any barefoot musician would do really!  Smooth jazz is synonymous with the New Orleans music scene, Connor is already a regular & trusted model, and he can really play the sax!  Oh you meant to ask why barefoot?  Feet are a thing of beauty, bare feet symbolize youth & freedom.  These are regular themes in Christopher’s work, and specifically in his “Focus on Feet” photography series.
