Primavera is always a bit of a challenge as there is about 200 photographers to share the pits with... Here are my pros and cons of this year festival.+ Sun + Seeing the Cure + Shooting Portraits of Josh T Pearson - one of the greatest beard around + Richard Hawley + Goat cheese salad
- The storm on the last day and no tent to put us in - Shooting the Cure (the worse pictures of my Cure history - I will blame the high stage and the other 200 photographers)... - Waking up after three hours sleep - Not understanding anything - Too many point and shoot
One of the good things is that I met Josh T Pearson who accepted to do a portrait session. However I had to wake up after only three hours sleep to do the shoot at the hotel. I waited patiently half asleep for him and his Manager to arrive, behind Marianne Faithful... I would have love to bump into Warren Ellis who played the Festival with the Dirty Three but unfortunately it didn't happen !
Since I have been back from Primavera, I have only shot one gig : Jack White at Brixton !
