NORTHCOTE, MATZE ROSSI & JON SNODGRASS | ON TOUR HAMBURG & HANNOVER
Years ago when I started with photography (as a hobby back then) I mostly took photos at punk and hardcore music shows. I've been playing in bands myself for about twenty years and so documenting the scene I was part of felt natural to me and kinda gave another type of outlet to me. Years passed by and I stopped shooting concerts as I felt I wasn't enjoying the music anymore, I was just there to take photos and so I stopped doing it. At the end of 2016 I am slowly transitioning back to that and am really happy with documenting shows from time to time but what I really love is to document things happening besides the concert itself, backstage life, soundchecks, all these things the audience mostly never experiences and the artists almost never will have photos of. To me as a musician back then I loved having photographers on tour with us as they preserve so many memories. It's special. It really is.
So, I had the chance to accompany Northcote, Matze Rossi and Jon Snodgrass on tour for two days and so capturing moments during their shows in Hamburg and Hannover. Thanks for having me with you, Matt, Stephen, Matze & Jon.
Here's what I saw and preserved...
