Photos by Szilvia Szanto. The captions, especially those pertaining to the backflips performed by Javier Mas, are entirely my own fault.

Marc Roed Photo Of Sharon Robinson Featured In Gragjanski Magazine


Sharon Robinson’s Facebook Page offers a scan of an article about her in Gragjanski, a Macedonian magazine. I’m told the text is appropriately laudatory but I’m most interested in that spectacular photo of Ms Robinson.

That photo looked familiar.

Turns out it looked familiar because three months ago it was posted on this site at “Photographer Of Two Superb Sharon Robinson Photos Identified.” The occasion for the posting was the discovery that this shot (and one other favorite Robinson photo) were taken by Marc Roed at the Aug 26, 20012 Leonard Cohen Aalborg concert.

The magazine flipped the photo horizontally to look like this.

My ability to read Macedonian isn’t strong – or existent, so I don’t know if Marc received credit for the photo or not. Regardless, I certainly want him credited on Cohencentric.
