Look at Mountain Top

Peter Gabriel (the first person I ever saw in concert...and one of my heroes) performing at WOMAD last Saturday as a fund raising concert for the human rights charity, Witness.

 

I was invited down to take photos by Dickie Chappell (who I will never be able to thank enough), Peter Gabriel's sound engineer...who I met and became friendly with last year at the Edinburgh Fringe.

 

Peter Gabriel has actually played a significant role in my photography over the years. I bought my first zoom lens to photograph him at Glasgow Apollo, when I took this shot:

 

The Angel Gabriel

 

I also bought my first digital camera (a Minolta DiMage F300) just before seeing him at the NEC in Birmingham when I took this shot:

 

Growing Up

 

You can see my other WOMAD shots in my WOMAD 2009 set.
