Matt’s Fave LOOK! Portraits

This was my fourth year covering Airwaves, and although it’s crazy every year, this was probably my busiest yet. It was my first time as a member of the official Airwaves photo team. It was a pleasure working with a crack team of shooters and organizers. I also spent the last couple months organizing a group music photography exhibition called, “Look at the Light: Moments from Iceland Airwaves”. Check it out at KEX Hostel in the Gym & Tonic Room until November 25th!

On top of all that, I shot the band portrait series here aptly named LOOK!. You may have seen another portrait series that I shot earlier this year at ATP Iceland. It wasn’t my intention to do the same thing again. In fact, I didn’t think that this would turn out be a series at all. It started with the simple the idea to photograph one band a day whenever I had time. It grew into something bigger and better than I imagined. Five days and 16 bands later, here are some of my favorites!

Thank you to Haukur, Hilmar, Gabríel and all the lovely GV folks for letting me set up shop in your office, and for your help coordinating shoots. Thank you to all the bands that participated (and sorry to anyone that it didn’t work out with). Hope you enjoy and see you same time next year!
