With the spotlights off, concert over, sweaty, breathless rock musicians hide behind the stage. Photographer Matthias Willi has captured all this in his new book "The Moment After the Show".
With the help of the journalist Olivier Joliat, Willi took pictures of more than 100 musicians during those first few minutes after a concert ends. It doesn't matter if they are huge stars or local heroes, in the end, the differences vanish. Singer and actress Juliette Lewis of Juliette and the Licks sums it up: "That’s the only way to show how we really are."
