One of my favourite albums of the year so far is “The Seldom Seen Kid” by Elbow. I’ve always been a fan but this album, for me, has taken them to a whole new level of songwriting. There isn’t a track on the album that I don’t love, and some are just incredible. The album won this year’s Mercury Music Prize and I can’t think of an album which deserves the honour more. If you haven’t heard it yet, do yourself a favour and check it out.
I’ve photographed Elbow before but this time I was excited not only to shoot them, but also to stay and watch the whole show. Evelyne’s a fan too so I booked a babysitter and we headed out for “date night”.
