Ryo Nishikawa;Scream;At the end of Gin Wigmore’s set, Joe Walsh hopped off the stage into the pit which made the audience excited even more. The audience at the front was so happy and didn’t stop screaming. At that moment, I knew I captured a special moment for both the artist and the audience.
Ryo Nishikawa;Through the screens;My intention for this photo of Ruel was to raise the question “Why do we record/take photos at concerts?”. Of course, I am guilty of this, but the number of phones I see is rather ominous. How many phones do you see in the photo?
