From the Europe final concert of the exceptional Norwegian band MADRUGADA in the Hamburger Fabrik. Here are pictures of the great concert with my iPhone & HIPSTAMATIC. I think the pictures tell their stories about this great singer SIVERT HØYEM with his warm, touching voice in wonderful harmony with the musicians of his band.
MADRUGADA, that's Sivert Høyem, Frode Jacobsen & Jon Lauvland Pettersen with Cato Thommassen and Christer Knutsen.
Thank you for these unforgettable moments!
Listen, view and enjoy!
Kerstin was unable to photograph the songs *CALL MY NAME*, *WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND*, *BLOOD SHOT ADULT COMMITMENT KIDS* and *VALLAY OF DECEPTION* for very mundane reasons. She hopes so much that MADRUGADA will allow her to do this at a later date. Preferably in Norway on the Vesterålen. That's quite a big wish. :-)
Besides the iPhone pictures, here are a few pictures of the great song *MAJESTY*. They were taken with my Nikon D800 and my beloved Nikkor 85mm.
An unforgettable experience to see the band I have loved for so long live with my camera. I was allowed to photograph the first three songs - *NOBODY LOVES YOU LIKE I DO*, *RUNNING FROM THE LOVE* & *SLOWLYTURNS THE WHEEL* and hope to do more in the near future.
And I look forward to showing you some of these photos taken with the Nikon very soon. Just keep checking back here.
And another very special video from the *MADRUGADA Vesterålen Project* to enjoy. It reflects what I love so much about this music. This elemental connection between the land, the people and their music, which is able to touch you deeply!
And I slipped in two pictures that belong to a different song. I like her a lot though! :-)
Listen, see and enjoy!
My big wish to portray the band in their home country is pretty high on my agenda. The photos I took here are mostly portraits of the band members associated with each song.
Anyone who knows me knows that I like to tell picture stories. The exceptional singer SIVERT HØYEM makes it very easy for me to portray him. Also on stage he tells stories in great acoustic harmony with his wonderful band MADRUGADA. These are with him Frode Jacobsen andJon Lauvland Pettersen and with them: Cato Thommassen and Christer Knutsen. The band's stage presence is unique.
A one take video of our song Darling West by the great photographer Johan Nord. Audio by the equally great Herman Kvelprud.
Thank you MADRUGADA and DARLING WEST for allowing me to experience and photograph it!
