As eight musicians perform works by Bach on Wednesday at John Jay College, there will be a ninth man in the shadows, tapping away at a keyboard, keeping time. That man will be the photographer Chris Hondros, who will be accompanying the musicians on his computer, projecting 900 of his images of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

For some in the audience of “Sound + Vision: At War,” the music would be the only impetus to sit through 900 images. For others, the photographs would be the only reason they would choose to listen to Bach performed live.

“The music amplifies the pictures, and the pictures amplify and clarify the music,” said Mr. Hondros, who is a Getty Images photographer. “It’s a way to get a really large amount of information in pictures and music to people in a way that is very intuitive and easy to absorb.” [view video]
