The In-Betweens

Essay 71 • Aug 5th 2016

While photographing shows over the past year, I began to become less interested in fighting to get the perfect live shot. It was a mix between wanting to be in the moment and enjoy the music, and not strain myself to get that one photo that a dozen other photographers were going to get as well. While taking a back seat to the usual pit chaos, I began to notice these moments that came before and after the ones that everyone else was trying to capture.

They were neither loud, nor silent, almost pauses if you will. In between sets, in between beats. I began to actively look for these moments, shooting them as well as going back through my archive of other shows; finding what hadn't necessarily fit before.
