A number of years ago I helped photograph a wedding at which Al Green was the featured musician. I made many photographs of him from the foot of the stage but I was unhappy with them all. Al Green is extraordinary but my photographs were average. So I moved behind the dancers and looked again. The scene had everything: the musicians, the crowd and the stage lights with their wonderful beams suddenly filled the canvas for the incomparable Al Green and placed him in a story worth telling. Right away, I knew this was the one and when I look at it I still hear the music.
I, I’m so in love with you
Whatever you want to do is all right with me
‘Cause you make me feel so brand new
And I want to spend my life with you.
