Coil @ Agra Hall, Wave-Gothic-Treffen 2001

Posted 3 Jan 2016.

In 2001, I went to the German festival Wave-Gothic-Treffen and saw Coil. I had a new 1.2 megapixel point and shoot camera which was state of the art at the time. It was dark so I took a few flash photos and as I could check the photos right after taking them, realized that the band was wearing relfective suits that did weird things in the flash. I switched to existing light photography and felt sorry for all the photographers in front of me shooting roll after roll of flash photography.
