The Gaslight Anthem, Olympia Theatre, Dublin, 17th June 2013
2013 Mercury Prize winners Alt-J played a hugely-anticipated show in The Olympia Theatre in Dublin. Expectations were high, the crowd was huge and the band were rather good. A fantastic light show helped things, and gave a great atmosphere to the music. Made my life nice and easy. A band also not known for running around the stage, up PA gantries and the like.
First studio shoot with Josh for a few years, last one was up the Swiss Alps in 2007. You can read the interview with Olaf Tyaransen for Hot Press here.
This session was for the Hot Press cover to mark the release of his brand new long-player, ‘The Beast In It’s Tracks’. Went with a mixture of a clean white and black background, as Mr Ritter was looking very dapper that day so suited his look quite well. Here are some shots that were used in the feature, processing by Mr Dave Keane of Hot Press.
