After SXSW last month, I heard a lot about St Vincent and her more dramatic stage presence. So I was very excited to have a chance to photograph her show at the State Theater in Minneapolis last week. It was is strangely engaging, while she at times seemed totally cold, calculated and almost robotic, she would then just let loose and tease the audience with a hint of her personality. With almost no extra movement or emotion, St Vincent would unleash her incredible guitar chops, creating some fierce guitar sounds, even while standing stiffly in the center of the stage. Her robot shuffle around the stage felt totally odd until the strobe lights started, and transformed her walk from a weird waddle into perfect illusion floating across the stage. I worked to capture the purposely stiff facade, and contrast it with the intense musical crescendos, and moments of real emotion on stage.
