Imagine Huy

The 2012 Imagine Competition (all styles music competition for Belgian youth) semi finals kicked off yesterday in Huy. I documented the 2011 competition as a collaboration with the JMI Foundation which led to an exhibition at the Botanique - With the freedom to pick my angle, I focused mostly on the backstage energy, shooting only very little of the actual performances. I was invited back this year as a 'worker' - my brief being to shoot mainly stage action. Quite nice to actually watch the whole event! The lighting was crap, the stage set up was very deep and the stage way too high... but you have to go with the flow (thank you 5DMarkII)! The deserved winners of this semi-final: Salad Bar (this is not a photo of them, here's one :p)
