Leonard Cohen’s Music – Dominique Issermann’s Images

This video is a sequence of vignettes, all shot and directed by Dominique Issermann on her iPhone, for  eight of the songs on the Old Ideas album. These range from slideshows of Leonard Cohen photographs taken by Issermann to video sequences over which Leonard Cohen sings but in which he does not appear. The vignettes themselves are in black and white although the title inserts are in color.

There is, as well, the occasional product placement.

I don’t think he’s wrong..

The sign on the tram advertises the August 31, 2012 Leonard Cohen concert in that city. The photo was taken in Gothenburg, Sweden and posted on Instagram by vijinho. Originally posted August 15, 2012 at DrHGuy.com, a predecessor of Cohencentric

These exceptional photos of signage, including an anachronistic poster featuring Leonard Cohen with a cigarette in hand, at the July 17, 2009  Molde Jazz Festival were shot and shared by Geoffrey Wren. In addition, Geoffrey helpfully provides a translation of the legend on the second poster:

No video cameras, animals, bottles, thermos flasks, weapons or umbrellas – and smoking allowed only in certain areas
