Best Face in the Crowd

Sandy Carson's We Were There

Somewhere on his hard drive Sandy Carson has a picture of you. The Scotland-raised, Austin-based photographer spent the last decade turning his lens toward the audience at concerts. His debut hardcover, We Were There, captures front-row fiends, mosh pit daredevils, screaming sing-alongers, transfixed fans, human scaffolding for crowd-surfers, and confused parents in moments loaded with beauty, humor, and emotion.
