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).

Thirty Seconds To Mars

Last night Thirty Seconds To Mars held a concert in Oslo Spektrum as part of their «Monolith Tour». The band is fronted by famed actor Jared Leto (well known for his performances in movies such as «The Thin Red Line» (1998), «Fight Club» (1999), «American Psycho» (2000), «Requiem For A Dream» (2000), «Dallas Buyers Club» (2013), «Suicide Squad» (2016) and «Blade Runner 2049» (2017) - just to name a few).

I had a really good time in the photo pit, and I'm grateful that the photographers were allowed to stay in the pit during the full show. That is not something that happens too often.
