Images of the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover in Lewes

THAT ALL CHANGED IN 2013 WHEN MUMFORD & SONS ANNOUNCED THAT THE SMALL SUSSEX TOWN WOULD PLAY HOST TO THEIR ONLY UK STOPOVER OF 2013. HELD OVER TWO DAYS IN JULY, IT WAS A HUGE EVENT, A PROPER FESTIVAL AND AS SUCH A MOMENTOUS OCCASION FOR THE TOWN, ITS RESIDENTS AND THOSE WHO ATTENDED. FOR ME, THE BIG ATTRACTION WASN’T THE MUMFORDS (I’M NOT A FAN) BUT VAMPIRE WEEKEND AND THE VACCINES, TWO OF MY FAVOURITE BANDS. THE SUN WAS BLAZING, THE ATMOSPHERE WAS SUPERB AND, APART FROM SOME ISSUES GETTING IN, FOR A FIRST TIME EVENT IT WAS VERY WELL-ORGANISED. BUT AS GOOD AS THE BANDS WERE, THE FANS WERE EQUALLY GREAT, ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO TOOK PART IN SATURDAY’S POWDER PAINT FIGHT. FOR ONE PHOTOGRAPHER, CAPTURING AN ENTIRE FESTIVAL IS NIGH ON IMPOSSIBLE, BUT I HOPE THESE IMAGES CONVEY THE ATMOSPHERE OF THE EVENT, THE BANDS ON THE STAGE AND THE AUDIENCE WHO HELPED MAKE IT SO MEMORABLE. I WAS ONLY ALLOWED TO SHOOT THE FIRST THREE SONGS OF EACH BAND AND AS MOST WERE ONSTAGE DURING DAYLIGHT, I WASN’T ABLE TO GET THE ‘CLEAN’ IMAGES I USUALLY AIM FOR. LACK OF TIME AND COPING WITH A RANGE OF DIFFERENT LIGHTING IS OF COURSE PART OF THE CHALLENGE OF SHOOTING LIVE MUSIC. GIVEN THE CIRCUMSTANCES, I’M HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS. I PARTICULARLY LIKE THE COLOUR PALETTE I’VE GIVEN THESE SHOTS, WHICH SUBCONSCIOUSLY I THINK WAS INFLUENCED BY THE MUTED TONES OF THE GENTLEMEN OF THE ROAD BRANDING. I HOPE YOU LIKE THEM!

  4. 4. gary marlowe IMAGES OUT OF THE ORDINARY ABOUT GARY MARLOWE WITH A BACKGROUND IN MARKETING AND GRAPHIC DESIGN, GARY APPLIES HIS HIGHLY DISTINCTIVE VISUAL STYLE TO CREATING IMAGES OUT OF THE ORDINARY ACROSS A DIVERSE ARRAY OF SUBJECT MATTER, FROM ROCK MUSIC, FAST CARS AND FASHION TO FLOWERS, FOOD AND ANIMALS. WHATEVER THE SUBJECT, HIS WORK IS INSTANTLY RECOGNISABLE, BOTH IN ITS COMPOSITION AND ESPECIALLY WITH ITS PLAYFULLY ILLUSTRATIVE GRAPHIC STYLE. INVARIABLY, HE USES HIS IMAGES TO TELL STORIES AND IMAGINATIVELY CAPTURE A ONE-OFF EXPERIENCE.
