2018 in Music: A Collection of Photos

0B8A1486.jpg

This year has been a year of new adventures. I’ve been doing a little less music photography, but has managed to travel a lot, visiting new and old places. Ibiza, New York, Iceland. New festivals with and without my camera bag; Panorama NYC, Roskilde Festival, Øyafestivalen, Iceland Airwaves. Enjoying life and working hard.

I started 2018 with a wonderful and intimate Charlotte Dos Santos show at Victoria Nasjonal Jazzscene in Oslo and ended it with a really poor concert by Ms. Lauryn Hill at Oslo Spektrum. In between I’ve photographed artists like Sigrid, Grandmaster Flash, Gary Numan, Harry Styles, Thirty Seconds To Mars, Metallica, Demi Lovato, Foo Fighters, Father John Misty, Prophets Of Rage, Arcade Fire, St. Vincent, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Roger Waters, Jeff Lynne, Laurie Anderson, Shania Twain, Blood Orange and MGMT. Not bad!

I sincerly hope you enjoy this collection of pictures from 2018 (click on the image for full screen).

Roger Waters

Last night Pink Floyd legend Roger Waters performed in front of 18.000 people at Telenor Arena for the first of two sold out nights in Oslo. The concert was part of his «Us + Them» tour, and I must admit that it was nice to finally get a chance to shoot him as I am a big fan of the music he has produced with Pink Floyd, and his last studio album, «Is This The Life We Really Want?». I had originally planned to photograph Waters in Berlin on his last tour («The Wall») a couple of years ago, but unfortunately it did not work out with my schedule.

I've seen Roger Waters twice in concert before; at Roskilde Festival in Denmark back in 2006 and in Vestlandshallen Bergen as part of Bergenfest in 2007, performing «Dark Side Of The Moon». And I will be back for his second and last show in Oslo tonight.
