When I first heard from Pete Purnell, he wrote that his goal was to take concert photos that would “capture moments and subtle gestures” of the sort that are rarely caught in the shots favored by sources such as newspapers and magazines. These photos from the 2013 Leonard Cohen Rotterdam Concert are evidence that he remains committed to this mission. His shots from this show are also a dandy addition to one my favorite photo themes: When Bad Seats Happen To Good Photographers.
And I’m fond of this view of the stage and audience.
