Sigur Rós is an art piece for the ears and eyes. Truly a full body experience. I was fortunate enough to photograph them again at the Auditorium Theatre downtown Chicago on June 3rd. I first shot them at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis last September.
As always, their performance was blissfully breathtaking. The visuals and lighting were unique and beautifully represented their music - effortlessly evoking powerful emotion. Which is everything an artist desires.
I constantly desire to accurately convey moments and stimulate the emotion I capture on camera for my viewing audience. Lately, I've been taking a more moody approach to my editing - enhancing organic shadows and creating depth with selective contrast / detail. Which seems to translate well with the imagery I captured of this performance.

In light of veganism, did you know their vocalist/guitarist/writer Jonsi Birgisson is vegan? Just some food for thought.
