Photographing with mild concussion is an interesting state to be in.
I collided heads with a Year 8 student prior to going and photographing Alex, I now have a lump the size of an egg on my forehead, and it hurts a LOT.
BUT … I wanted to see Alex play, it’s been a while.
I know Alex through Officer Kicks (yup – that band has enriched my life quite a lot!) and I’m glad I do. His music is beautiful, plaintive and induces goose-bumps and tears at the drop of a hat in this over-emotional photographer.
Before the gig we did an interview for an ex-student of mine. She’s creating a documentary for college about the music industry and we plumped ourselves on a dimly lit staircase and chatted for a while. Hopefully we got something useful for her!
Anyway – here’s some photos I took on Tuesday evening with a bump on my noggin. The rest, of course, can be found on my site here.
PLEASE go and listen to his music – you won’t be disappointed!
