Renowned music photographer Ester Segarra willbe be attending Tons of Rock festival, exhibiting and promoting her anthology 'ARS UMBRA - The Art of Ester Segarra'


Ester Segarra is a renowned music photographer, who has been an integral part of the worldwide heavy music landscape for over 15 years. Born in Barcelona, Spain, and now dividing her time between London and Stockholm, the internationally-acclaimed artist's inimitable style transcends music photography. Segarra's multitude of photos have been featured in every major metal magazine, internet resource, and a wide array of critically acclaimed albums, her standout images becoming the cornerstone of thevisual identity of such bands as Mayhem, Darkthrone, Watain, Abbath, Rotting Christ, Electric Wizard, and many more.

She has recently released an anthology photo-book of her work, ‘ARS UMBRA: the Art of Ester Segarra' via Season of Mist. Including an original soundtrack, it is as much a historical document in extreme music, as it is a piece of art in itself.

Containing over 150 photographs, spanning over 100 bands -with accompanying texts written by the featured musicians, detailing the stories behindmany of the pictures -Ars Umbra beautifully captures the energy of an important part of heavy metal history.

Understanding the umbilical link between visual art and music, Ester commissioned a soundtrack to accompany the book. Inspired by a Macumba ritual she attended, the instrumental soundtrack was written and performed by Uno Bruniusson (ex-In Solitude, Death Alley, Procession); it provides a unique rhythm and adds another layer of artistry to the whole Ars Umbra experience.

Segarra deliberately removed herself from her day-to-day lifefor two and a half yearsto focus on the compilation and creation of Ars Umbra. Her self-imposed isolation allowed her to fine-tune the collection of images and hone in on the essence of individuality that has made herwork so desirable.

Here's a promo video for the book:

 

Designed in collaboration with Branca Studio and Münster Studio the level of attention to detail in the book is second to none. A vinyl size hardcover book with sewn binding, anti-scuff matt lamination and 220 interior pages printed on deluxe paper (Munken Lynx) with a digital download for the soundtrack. A special edition limited to 500 copies worldwide, comes packed in deluxe box stamped with silver hot foil with the soundtrack is presented on black 12" vinyl with etched B-side.
