Once in a while events come along that are one of a kind, events that will stay with me forever. I have been a bit of a lucky potato and been a part of a couple of unique events lately. A few weeks ago, I worked for DIGNITY – Danish Institute Against Torture and Danish band Who Made Who and documented their charity concert at the fabulous Danish Royal Theatre and another slice of one-off magic was burned into my brain – and onto memory cards.
I had big expectations before this gig, Who Made Who is an awesome live band, I knew my buddy Mad ES was in charge of visuals and would provide a trippy visual journey for us and I knew the Royal Theatre is a jawdropping venue. But would it all click, would magic happen? Spoiler alert: yes! It was a perfect marriage of audio, visuals, lights and venue. I arrived early to have time to meet everyone, see the whole setup process, shoot the rehearsal and explore the venue! I think I spent an hour just exploring all levels and rooms of this stunning theatre.
I think the venue was almost completely full and the concert really took off. Who Made Who can totally pull off a concert in a place like this and it was not long before the first 3-4 rows were dancing right in front of the stage. The whole show ended with a hundred people or so having climbed onto the stage in one wonderfully chaotic encore!
Thanks so much to everyone involved for having me be part of this day. Had to pinch myself to realise that years and years of practice and effort in music photography has brought me to a point where I get to be part of something like this. <3 Magic.
PS. I am absolutely spellbound by the WhoMadeWho feat. Simon Littauer tune “Goodbye to All I know“. Put it on repeat, loudly, on good headphones, while you browse these images.
