I always wanted to take a photo-reportage of a concert. I had pictures in my head of stars like David Bowie when he put on his make-up in the dressing room in front of a mirror. Catching intimate moments of musicians and crew, photographed through my special street glasses. In April 2019 I had the chance to do it.
Andreas Krüger is the founder of the vinyl label clostridiumrecords. He started in 2010 and his 50th vinyl record is coming up this year. He's been my colleague and friend for over 15 years. We work together in an intensive care unit. Andi is my „partner in crime“, during the time his record label grew up my street photography has evolved. Andreas is one of the few people in my life to whom I can entrust everything. He is carrying the heart at the right place. We always had a lot of conversations. A REAL friend ❤️
On April 13, 2019, Andi organized his first labelnight in the Pauluschurch in Dortmund. A rock festival with four bands. And I'm allowed to accompany the festival with my camera.
I had the great pleasure to meet the lighting master Peter Petersen. He is a specialist in analog lighting. His skills combined with the music and interior of the church were a perfect symbiosis.
A very nice guy and I was very impressed of his lightshow. Everything was enlightened in a beautiful psychedelic retro style. Describing with words is not enough here. You have to have see it. Just watch the video down below here.
It was not my personal taste of music. But I loved the feeling and the spirit. A very nice experience overall. And I met many new friends. Hope to meet you again sometime. Thank you for having me
I end up here with the words of Andi
