Kane Hibberd To Release Book Of Soundwave Photography
Take an Access All Area’s trip though the archives of official Soundwave photographer Kane Hibberd’s debut photography book, ‘Kanye Lens Vs Soundwave Volume 1’
Since the festival went national in 2008, Kane (aka Kanye Lens) has been on hand to capture every banging head, sweaty riff and thrashing body, that has ensured that each festival has been bigger and better than the one before.
His first book, which Kane is self funding and independently publishing, is spread over 450 pages and contains more than 600 colour and black and white images of all the action both on and off stage. Including personal commentary on his imagery from artists and crew, the book aims to give a holistic picture to a festival that is now firmly entrenched into the hearts and memories of music fans.
“From the moment I was asked to jump on board the Soundwave machine, my goal was to, one day, produce a coffee table style photography book. I grew up watching Tony Mott create a legacy with the Big Day Out and now this is hopefully the start of my own legacy. I’ve tried to create book full of imagery that can escape the shadow of its famous inhabitants and stand alone as beautiful pieces of artwork. Hopefully the book will appeal to not only music fans, but also fans of photography.” – Kane Hibberd (Kanye Lens)
