Claus Rotstein of Brisbane, Australia, who has photographed bands and artists including Slipknot, Joe Bonamassa, Culture Club, Faith No More and Megadeth, has won the Independent Music Award for his photo of Greg Puciato (Killer Be Killed) taken at Soundwave Festival 2015 in Brisbane.
The 15th Independent Music Award Winners have been announced on 12th November at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City during a free, day-long music festival showcasing exceptional IMA talent. The event was well-attended by fans, industry professionals and nominated artists.
About The Photo
“The photograph captures the raw power and anarchic chaos of a heavy metal show. When Greg Puciato went crowdsurfing into the pit I was right there with him allowing me to capture his energy. All his muscles were stressed to the max, his shirt was ripped apart.”
