Currently on Exhibit
From intimate living rooms to the most coveted VIP lounges, I have found myself shooting in every conceivable - albeit precarious - situation a typical concert-goer finds them in. Despite shooting amongst these envelopes of energy, shooting from the troughs of a pit (circular or otherwise) gives me a moment to slow down. After 15-years experiencing these spaces, you can say I’ve learned the dance of the room; the sounds in the air predicting the waves of action so to reflect the dynamic atmosphere. Moreover, I learned that the allure of the “rockstar” is really situated in the vitality of the audience in relation to a performance.
More than an encore of my favorite of moments, “Atmospheric Conditions” is a colorful dedication to the ebb and flow of the concert experience and the art of aural adventures. ~L. Herrada-Rios
