Another very busy couple of weeks. Just got back from three days shooting Fuji Rock Festival for ACUMEN magazine. The feature is about the British bands playing at the festival, these included The Stone Roses, both Gallagher brothers, The Kooks, Ocean Color Scene, Ray Davies, The Specials, The Heartbreaks, Spiritualized, Elvis Costello, Radiohead, and my personal favorite of the festival, a new soul artist called Michael Kiwanuka.
Don’t want to post images of the British acts before they go to print, but here are a couple of shots of non-UK performers Jack White (above) and Toots and Matayls (below).
I had a fantastic time. This was partly because it was the first rain-free Fuji Rock Festival in several years, but mainly due to the fact that I met many great people on the trip. To all the photographers, security, organizers, VIPs, artists and festival goers, thanks for making it a memorable few days. My computer is currently wheezing away under the weight of so many cool images.
Update: Magazine published you can see the blog post here
I’d love to see the final article when it goes to print!
