Angelo Debarre is a unique artist and not at all a Django copycat, but on this picture he looked so much like Django that I had to process it ‘old style’.
My earliest concert shot. It’s the only shot from that whole concert worth retrieving, and though imperfect I have a fondness for it…
Thomas Bramerie during the concert release party of Eric Legnini’s latest album Sing Twice!
A photo of Ryan Scott, trumpet player for soul-funk band Monophonics.
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.
On a beautiful winter day I walked with my sons to the Sacré Coeur in Montmartre and took a lateral shot which I quite like. i gave it an old timey processing without overdoing it for what I hope is an interesting but not too classic postcard look.

Surinder is a tuk-tuk driver I met and befriended the first time I went to Delhi in 2011. He offered to walk me arond the Gurdwara Bangla Sahib Sikh temple, which I readily accepted. This is a portrait of him after the visit.
