Van Morrison, ACLFest, Sept 15, 2006

Van was one of the Legends whom I’d never gotten to shoot. He was worth the wait. I got to shoot him in the studio, and then, the next night, at the Festival, too. I consider him to be one of the best interpreters of the Mystical. He has a magical voice, lyrical and deft. Now, having said that, I have to share that his stage manager makes shooting Van almost impossible. I consider this shot to be a major triumph, sharing Van’s magic visually in spite of stiff and resolute impediments… But in the end it’s only rock and roll, and they’re only unarmed security guys….no big deal. Van was great.
