The Blue Balls Festival is an annual music festival in the Swiss city of Lucerne that has been held since 1992 with a focus on blues, jazz, soul, funk, world, rock and pop music. Since 2010 i was part of the festival as a concert photographer. in the year 2017 i've build a small backstage studio to portray the musicians playing the shows on the main stages. My goal was to do this project for 5 years and see how my artistic development on portrait photos in an environment with limited space and time would be. Due the Covid situation, festivals were cancled and this project came to a hold after three years. These are some of the results.
