This collection represents nearly 10 years of concert photography and the most important series of work I have achieved.
Dealing with limitations in time, space and lighting forced me to think on my feet and edit while shooting. It redefined how I compose an image and evolved my perception of a portrait.
It was not enough for me to document what was happening on stage - I wanted to capture the humanity of the performance. Rather than hold the shutter button down and take everything in one clumsy burst, I searched for moments that made the best impression. I strained to see the people who existed beneath the lights and the choreography.
Not all of the shows I covered are represented, just my favorite images. Click on images for caption information.
