shed light on rock’n’roll

The Task

The Result

On Stage is a bilingual pictorial volume, that has resulted in photographs that convey the passion, ambience and energy of the performances and allow the viewer to take part in the special atmosphere of the live concert. A key element in the design approach is the colorful light of the light shows which shines through the photography on the design itself and therefore gives every page its very unique character. The imagery is accompanied by text fragments based on the experience of stage photographers, musicians and those who are living the life on stage.
