weekly photo challenge: work of art

is work for art: harpa, the reykjavik concert hall. changes colors with the light. a beautiful building, these are all night time shots. daytime it’s shimmering green, an emerald. a place for art, a place of art.

robert forster @ iceland airwaves

shadow mana hero from my past, one of the founding members of the go-betweens, an australian 80’s act on the alternative (indie) rock scene. always of critical acclaim, never topping the charts. life is unfair…

it was a great pleasure to see your name among all up comers, my rock’n’roll friend.

iceland airwaves – 2nd night

from iceland over denmark to the uk. crossing waters to hear some great music this night. umtbs, borko, mö and alunageorge captured during great performances. saw also (partly) sumie nagano, mariam the believer and omar souleyman, but no shots. can’t believe i actually was at gigs without shooting…

iceland airwaves – 1st night

it wasn’t just stunning scenery and wild nature dragging me to iceland, it was also the iceland airwaves 2013 festival. the place where you will find the acts breaking into mainstream next year. i saw in total 18 bands, some more, some less – but a great deal of fantastic music. next year you’ll see danish singer mö, us artists like papa, empress of and zola jesus, british artists like money and alunageorge on the line up for more renowned festivals than this. is my bet…

first night was mainly icelandic, here some shots from mammut and retro stefson. i liked them both, not sure about there wider potential globally. if so, retro stefson are ones you’ll see in europe next year. the shots of the singer have a certain classic marvin gaye feel i like myself.
