At the end of 2017 I decided to take a break from all things photography. The reasons were long, complicated and varied. Sometimes to you have to change everything to liberate, it was time to disrupt the routine and explore a new perspective.
I decided my last formal shoot was for one of my favourite bands, Wolf Alice. I had photographed them back in 2016 in Belfast’s Mandela Hall (Wolf Alice : Mandela Hall) and they continue to mature and astound.
Wolf Alice was in Belfast touring the newly released ‘Visions of a Life’. The four piece, Ellie Rowsell (vocals, guitar), Joff Oddie (guitars, vocals), Theo Ellis (bass), and Joel Amey (drums, vocals) herald from London and have been on upward spiral of success since their official debut EP Blush in 2013.
The best of the photos have another purpose so these are the images that are left. I fear my engagement with the performance dragged my attention from taking photos but honestly, if you get a chance to hear Wolf Alice live, take it.
