LinTour 2016 – a Skate Punk Band’sTour (photo and video) Diary


5 (grown up) kids, 1 Van, 3500 Km, 6 Countries, 9 Venues, a lot of people, a border Policeman…

This time I decided to bring my “being a photographer” with me, but hanging out with a band on tour only allows limited equipment… and this is what came out

Linterno is a Skate Punk band based in Bologna. Once (or twice) a year they Tour across Europe, playing in venues, squats, festival and your daddy's living room.
I've been playing in this band since my early 20s and I keep doing it with energy and joy, stopping my photographic production and concentrating only on music.
In may 6th our Nth tour started and I decided to bring with me the photographer myself.
What came out is a short video (whose Soundtrack is an edit I did of one of our songs: The Road), a branch of my WIP Project "Polaroid" (I guess I'll change the name on release) and some colofull pictures of the countries we drove in.
I always loved to call these events LinTours and decided to name the video edit as such.
Enjoy
In those 10 days I recorded several minute of footage and this is my wrap up for the Tour
Shot with what you can bring around while hangin' with a punk band: my phone, a GoPro and a small camera
 
Last Check before loading the van
First picture with the van Packed
The following 6 pictures are a branch of my latest work in progress whose working title is "Polaroid". This involves a place (got it), maybe a subject (got five or six), a Camera (got a small Fujifilm X10) and a Polaroid POGO (with paper... Got it!). 
All of the places included in these pictures now include the picture itself.
