An ancient adult-sized playground. The name of this monolithic rock formation on the Trotternish peninsula of the Isle of Skye means "Great Man" in Old Norse. It forms part of a series of gigantic basalt rock formations that leave a teeth-like silhouette on the horizon.

Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.

Although he uses both digital and analog gears, he still regards using film as a more intimate way of creating images. Let's all welcome our newcomer from Brazil, Fernando Monteiro.
