VildirHeart

A bouquet of flowers for Maria

There was a lunchtime concert at the Cultural Centre in Handen yesterday. On stage were the band VildirHeart from Haninge. They describe their music as Alternative Pop. It's a family affair. On grand piano and vocals, Karin Dietrichson. She started the band three years ago, and when she asked her children to join her in the band, they said yes. On vocals then is Maria Dietrichson who you can see on the second photo, I liked her look, and figured I needed to take another portrait. On bass and vocals, Fredrik Dietrichson. Also in the band, but not playing today is drummer and percussionist Christoffer Lindgren. The band released their first album last year. It is called The Core.You can hear four of their songs at SoundCloud. A few songs also available at Spotify. On Friday they played a few cover songs from Hästpojken and Eldkvarn, and of course material from their debut album. If you want to see them check out this video. I got a copy of the album and after a first listen I have to say that I like it. It has a nostalgic feel to it. And what is a bit unusual, they sing in both Swedish and English. And if you want to buy a copy of The Core you can do so at CD Baby.

That bottom portrait is stunningly beautiful, a prize winner. The light is simply perfect. It is so interesting to compare how you and Olivier approach concert photography.

A very cool group. I like their music except it's very difficult to hear the lyrics, but I have a feeling that's their style.

'Tis a wonderful portrait, indeed, Steffe!

I listened to some of their tracks; liked them. A very nice portrait Steffe.

Beautiful shots. I like how they have given bouquets to everyone in the band. Something we don't see here often (with the exception of opera performances where bouquets are de rigueur for the divas).

Flott og stilig modell du har fotografert!
(Se DE øyenvippene!!)

Du er flink til å finne og å fotografere portrett, og får frem personligheten til dem du fotograferer.
