My journey in 2013 as a music photographer is summarized in the 15 photographs below. Although some of the photos may not necessarily come from the best gigs, I take the best of whatever it is I’ve been to. These photos are especially memorable to me because they evoked feelings of nostalgia and in some cases, became a catalyst for change in the scene.
I saw an artist I waited decades to see, encountered one who plays on the soundtrack of almost everyone's favorite TV show, enjoyed the music of a star embroiled in a controversy or emphasized Filipino-American ties. There were pictures to capture the end of something great, a semi-reunion of sorts, daring public stunts and the fun and danger of a few gigs.
Many moments big and small will always be part of live music, whether it’s pop, rock, hip hop and electronic music. These happen to be some of mine in 2013.
