February 9th, 2011 by Andrzej Prince plays NYC & MSG dances a Revolution: Full review & rare pictures

So, last night I went to Madison Square Garden and saw Prince for the fourth time. And once again, he did not disappoint. This shot is from the first time I saw him in 1986 at Wembley Arena in London. It was the beginning of my photographic career and I blagged a photo pass. Successfully. […]

This image comes from the first shoot I did after moving to NYC, five years ago today. At the time this band were called Omnisoul. They subsequently changed their name to The Crash Motive. And then split up. But I still remember that shoot as a great way to start my new life in America. […]

January 28th, 2011 by Andrzej Australia Day in America: Snow not sunshine in New York City

It snowed on Australia Day this year in NYC. Eight Mile Creek, an Australian bar & restaurant in Nolita, has an Australia Day party every year. I wandered up there from my apt around 11pm and found Andrew the owner shoveling snow from the footpath in front of the steps leading to the bar downstairs. […]

Celebrity Photography? People are people & Silverchair are better than most

January 19th, 2011 by Andrzej Celebrity Photography? People are people & Silverchair are better than most

Today I was asked to contribute some pictures to The Socialite website and comment on the difference between photographing celebrities and other people. And I have to say, there is very little difference. People are people and the way we behave towards those around us influences how they respond to us. The same applies in photography. […]

December 16th, 2010 by Andrzej SantaCon: Is Xmas the new Halloween? The hidden history of a Burning Man brother

A friend of mine came over last week and said she didn’t realise that Christmas had become the new Halloween.

December 9th, 2010 by Andrzej Mutoid Waste Co. & Carhenge at Confest: The Untold Full Story & Video

Sitting in a river with bats flying over my head as the beautiful Barbara wrapped herself around me, I reflected on life. It was a fine way to enter the new year. Building sculptures, creating a crew, ringing a bell, living the dream, loving the moment. Carhenge had delivered so much more than it had […]

Mutoid Waste Co. in Oz: Carhenge at Confest

November 30th, 2010 by Andrzej Mutoid Waste Co. in Oz: Carhenge at Confest

On NYE 1990/91 I found myself leading 3000 people from the top of Carhenge in a pagan drumming frenzy under a full moon and in the midst of a huge tropical thunder and lightning storm. It was definitely a peak life experience. And possibly the closest I will ever come to a rock star moment. […]

Mutoid Waste Co. Pt 2: Sultans Of Scrap

November 19th, 2010 by Andrzej Mutoid Waste Co. Pt 2: Sultans Of Scrap

I used to be a Mutoid. So did Joe Rush. But then again, Joe started the Mutoid Waste Co., so it's a lot harder for him to say he used to be a Mutoid. And although he walked away for a while, he did find his way back to the heart of what he started. […]

Boom Boom: Here Come The Satellites

October 21st, 2010 by Andrzej Boom Boom: Here Come The Satellites

"Tonight, I saw the future of Rock". Is a famous quote by Jon Landau about Bruce Springsteen. Before he became Springsteen's manager. In 2010 it could be equally applied to Boom Boom Satellites. Different decade, different century. Different music for a different generation. Bruce Springsteen, for all his genuine genius was never going to be […]

October 15th, 2010 by Andrzej Lovett: Stepping sideways into the spotlight

A few weeks ago a friend of mine, Eirene, who now works for Musebox PR company sent me a link to music by some guy I'd never heard of called Ben Lovett. I was busy at the time and didn't get around to listening to it. When I spoke to her she insisted I needed […]
