Robert Campos | Look, the Sun is Rising (Flaming Lips in Indianapolis, September 2017) | $250

Roberto Campos unintentionally stumbled into music photography in 2014. It was a cold, rainy October night, and Black Francis was playing a small club in Indianapolis. Shooting in JPEG only, making many mistakes, Roberto photographed his first show and became enraptured with the dynamics that performer and photographer experience during the first three songs. Since then, the Indianapolis-based photographer has transitioned to shooting in RAW and has photographed shows across the United States and music festivals such as Pitchfork Music Festival (Chicago), Day For Night, SXSW and Portugal’s Nos Alive. Japanese animation director Satoshi Kon is a major influence on Roberto’s work, and Kon’s visceral use of dramatic edits to tell a story.
