One would argue that there is no (good) concert without a band, but one could easily add that the same holds for the audience too - musicians would play for themselves and that’s not much fun, from what they tell me.
Merriam-Webster dictionary defines fan as "an enthusiastic devotee (as of a sport or a performing art) usually as a spectator". Music fans are known for their irrational devotion to their favourite artists most easily seen when they travel many, many hundreds of kilometres to see them perform live. I know that, because I’m one of them.
To somebody who doesn’t share the same passion towards (live) music, this could seem a bit of extravagance at least. Hence the fanatic in the title of this project.
My ongoing photographic project titled "Fan(atic)s" is about these wonderful people - music lovers, band supporters, live gigs proponents, festival goers. The fans. The fanatics.
