When I went to see Monophonics at La Java in May, it had been a long while since I hadn’t shot a concert in the truly atrocious conditions that you sometimes face in clubs with limited to no lighting, no stage and no space. For the longest time I couldn’t figure out how to deal with the results of that shoot. And then, perhaps because Monophonics is in France again but I’ll miss them this time, I revisisted the photos and decided to embrace the grunginess of it all instead of trying to erase it or tame it. The clutter I normally do my best to avoid shooting or to edit out, I left in. It’s a different kind of energy, and I’m not sure I’ve got it right, but I’d be interested in your feedback!
