Sigur Rós

    Newer Older

    This is a photograph of Jónsi taken from Sunday's Lollapalooza set. However, the background is from one of his solo shows at The Vic Theater in Chicago when he played in November of 2010. I'm always trying to create the feeling of music and show my emotional response to it all at the same time and for me this is what listening to Jónsi and Sigur Rós feels like.

    This was my 6th year photographing Lollapalooza for Pfork. If you are interested in seeing those photos, see:

      Good combination of the images — they should've been playing at nighttime anyway!

      I was there. I have to say I was skeptical about Sigur Ros playing in the afternoon but thought they pulled it off spectacularly!

      Interesting concept, some older photos of yours for p4k like that we're what mad we want to start shooting shows.

      I couldn't get into them at Lolla but it was great to lay in the grass at the end of the day at OL with the fog rolling in, didnt get close enough for photos though...

      Amazing set of Lollapalooza photos as usual! really like how you've combined the scenes in this one - I know what you mean about trying to create the feeling here. i think the best photography in general achieves that
