Danish legendary postpunk rockband Iceage played at Bremen Teater in Copenhagen.

I have a softspot for music with a punk’ish edge. There is a lot of punk attitude in a fair amount of electronic music too. Minds of 99 have a lot of punk energy and attitude. I am however not at all a student of the punk scene and only know a few Iceage songs. The show really grew on me, the last half an hour or so were totally great. More smoke and a standing audience could make it better, people were so eager to express their love, devotion and energy everyone stood up anyway the last couple of songs.

I have btw not done black and white images for a long time, this show was almost monochrome anyway so it seemed a great chance to think, shoot and develop in black and white. I have to always deliver pictures in colours, so making a black and white set means I have to develop everything twice and I have a slow laptop – but looking at this set, I think 2020 should be the year of more black and white for me.

    These are epic in black and white!

      Thank you my love! I spend a couple of hours trying to remember how I used to process black and white in Lightroom. Acros to the rescue 🙂

        It’s a super compelling way of processing these pictures. Think it works particularly well for the portrait range shots. I want to say something about grain and how the simulation handles tonality, but really, they’re just sensational photos and the processing brings that out beautifully 🙂

          Agree 🙂 In this set, the 2 x wideangle pictures benefit from colour to create more depth where as all the portrait shots really work well in bw. Speaking of tonality hehe, this is actually a theatre so the front light is high quality and NOT ugly LEDs and that helps here I think, as LEDs just wash out all tonality.

            They do. Well, next LED lit show, you can work with the Sin City look in mind 😉
