Bands, singers, mosh pits and massive crowds. These are few of the things that you find in concerts and music festivals. Oh, we forgot to mention that you may find Maclay Heriot fiddling with his film camera while he shoots roll after roll.
26-year old photographer Maclay Heriot has shot some of the who’s who in the music scene in and around his native Australia. Giving his film camera a good exercise, Heriot captures the energy in music festivals with every click of the shutter. It’s cool to think that there are still people who prefer shooting with film when it comes to their commercial works.
Maclay has shot music icons like Iggy Pop, Kanye West, Foals, Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Cure. His photographs show the different sides to the music scene. His 35mm photos are like a VIP and backstage pass altogether. Heriot shoots from among the crowd where the pumped up fans are all shouting and screaming the names of their favorite bands. The pulsating vibe within music festivals translate into Heriot’s pictures.
Also, Heriot has an ongoing exhibit of his music photography titled “Digital is Dead” in Howlin’ Wolf Bar, Wollongong. You can catch his works on display until December 18, 2013. His exhibit title pays homage to labor-rich process of film photography.
