A unique perspective on concert photography from a blind music fan, Ahmad Zaghal
Select one or more criteria to search Kid-friendly Get ideas Last time Zaghal was here at the Rocketship a group house in 16th Street Heights where underground rock bands make urgent noise on a cold basement floor he thought he was shooting local punk quartet Priests. Instead, Zaghal went home with some blurry snaps of the pipes and paneling. I thought there was some kind of stage here, he says. But my friends are pretty honest. Theyll tell me, Oh, you got a bunch of pictures of the ceiling. When his subjects dont elude the frame entirely, theyre often truncated, decapitated or abstracted into blurry smears of pixels. The least successful images become the most successful. Which is beautiful. And hilarious. Its a totally funny idea, Zaghal, 31, says. And now people are taking it more seriously. And thats great. Maybe there is a point to this! Point or no point, Zaghal is dedicated to pursuing this project some thing he refers to as both a joke and an experiment. He attends roughly 20 concerts a month, always arriving in time to snag a spot up front. Once the band gets started, he hoists his iPhone to his ear and listens. Screen-reading software tells him when hes selected the camera function. Then, he points and shoots.
