Photography has the power to record and freeze moments in people’s lives. It has provided us with a wealth of excellent material and perspectives on important topics to science, governments, and society. So, here’s another piece that delves into a different aspect of society.
Musicians are creative and performing artists who have a keen sense of aesthetics. Although they write and record their music in studios, one of the most important aspects of their job is performing in front of live audiences. These musicians pour their emotions out on stage as music under the bright lights, in front of audiences of hundreds of thousands of people applauding for them.
Bands usually play a series of performances in the tour style, which can last months and include a lot of traveling and performing. These musicians are weary after giving their all on stage for a few hours and are pounded by the exhaustion. They’re drenched with perspiration, their hair is a mess, and they’re eager to get into bed as quickly as possible.
Fans, cameras, and the rest of the world, on the other hand, only witness the portion when they are active and impressive on stage. What happens backstage is only visible to the artists and staff. As a result, one photographer with The Vans Warped Tour, Brandon Andersen, sought to record the differences in performers before and after the gigs.
He took portrait pictures of artists in front of the same background before and after going on stage. You can notice the contrast between the two images and get a sense of how exhausted she is.
Many individuals have shared this series of pictures, and it is relevant to many people who work in the music and entertainment sectors.
