“To me, punk rock is the freedom to create, freedom to be successful, freedom to not be successful, freedom to be who you are. It’s freedom.” – Patti Smith-
I shoot live music: distorted, loud, soft, beautiful and pretty much feel the same way about listening to it. The results are images, which weigh in on grit and character over perfection. We all have that magic thing that compels beyond average logic and reason. A love for music, that indefinable, being a piece of the picture unite here.
Chronologically and loosely these images fall between 2008 and 2016. The subjects in these images span various musical genres as ;commissions, documents or media images, but I consider the entire process an art form. The free rolling experience is like a magnet for musicians, the audience, and photographer alike. I started photographing shows after a bunch of years behind the scenes, timeout as an event tech and cutting one’s teeth as a creative for studio, film, events, and stage. Somehow all this has merged.
Finally, please and thank you, these images are absolutely not for reproduction without written permission. Do check in first if you wish to use them.
