    I don’t know many South African musicians, but we recorded Johnny Clegg in the studio where I work in Brussels. And amazing guy in every sense… he formed a mixed-race band back in the late 60’s when apartheid was at its height, and he’s still going strong.
    Cool gig for Mr. Blue opening for James Blunt. I love how you’ve made these gorgeous blue tones work, and how you composed his profile with the mic… it’s so easy when photographing musicians live to fall into the trap of the mic obscuring half the face.
    This is fine portraiture at its very best !!

  • So appreciate your comment – I’ve bubblemailed you – and yes – Johnny Clegg is my constant soundtrack when I take off into the deep beauty of the Karoo – we wind down the windows and turn up Johnny and sing to the surrounding silence… its wonderful…. we’ve all grown up listening to Johnny!!!
    And Elvis Blue’s latest album was shot in the Karoo too, its a magical place…
