We’ve Come So Far - The Last Days of Death by Audio is a photo book about the 75 day long closing party held during the last days of the DIY music venue Death by Audio, which was located in New York. The photo book is made by Ebru Yildiz, a NY-based music and portrait photographer.
This photo was taken while I was touring with the Finnish singer Jenni Vartiainen for my second photo book. The location was a small night club in a small Finnish town. There was no photo pit, and I had to choose one spot and stay there for the whole gig.
I like this photograph I took of the Finnish artist Anssi Kela for a couple of reasons. First off, I believe the unusal setting will make the viewer take a second look. The composition and angle do not explain too much about the situation, which hopefully activates the viewer’s imagination. I think photographs that make you try to imagine what is outside of the frame are rather powerful, because they engage you on a different level.
