5 Superb Photos By Paolo Brillo: 2009 Leonard Cohen Prague Concert

cohenPaolo Brillo contributes these photos from the August 29, 2009 Concert at the O2 Arena in Prague. I’m especially taken by the Full Joe Friday look of the shot of Leonard Cohen atop this post and the ultra-wholesome, some might even say “angelic” portrait of Charley Webb.
