THE CURE - Reflections - LIVE AT ROYAL ALBERT HALL
• NOVEMBER 15th 2011 •
A PHOTO DOCUMENTARY
I am a French freelance Graphic Designer & Photographer living in Paris...
I had the chance to "be there" in London, 25 years after my first Cure concert.
I was not accredited as a photographer (hopefully for the next three !...), so i just took one camera in my bag, wishing to be able to capture a few pictures for my "souvenirs".
Most of these images were taken from my seat (Door 9, Grand tier 34), with a minimal gear : a standart zoom lens (24-105 f/4).
Seing them now as a kind of "photographic film" of the concert, i decided not to keep them only for my eyes.
Some will say : what's the point, it is twenty times the same photo !
But the others will observe with attention the different colors, different moods, different attitudes, all the tiny details that change according to the song they play.
This page is dedicated to all The Cure fans around the world, the ones who were lucky enough to be there for this unforgettable moment, and all the ones who couldn't do it.
This is how a Cure concert looks like, this is how a Cure concert sounds.
