My earliest concert shot. It’s the only shot from that whole concert worth retrieving, and though imperfect I have a fondness for it…
A third shot from the Amsterdam Klezmer Band concert in April 2012 in Paris, this one from accordion player Theo van Tol. As a photographer, I love accordion players: the instrument offers such graphic possibilities… From the same concert you can check out photos of trombone player Joop van der Linden and trumpet player Gijs Levelt.
Sylvain Bardiau is the trumpet player from the Grande Campagnie des Musiques à Ouïr, an inventive and exciting French jazz collective. I often try to use the lensbaby during concerts for a different feel. Doesn’t always work, here I think it did. This photo was part of the three submissions at the Nancy Jazz Festival Concert Photography Contest 2011 that won second place.
