I was delighted to get an email from Deborah Johnson this weekend asking permission to use some of my photos from Sufjan Stevens’ Age of Adz Auckland show this February.

Deborah, aka CandyStations, has worked with the likes of Wilco, Andrew Bird and of course Sufjan Stevens among others creating video for shows as well as music videos.

At the Age of Adz show, I absolutely loved this video for “Too Much”. Also worth checking out are the live visual videos for Chicago¬†and Seven Swans, probably most meaningful to those who were lucky enough to go along to the show.

Sufjan Stevens playing “Concerning the UFO Sighting Near Highland, Illinois” from his Illinois album, as part of his encore at last night’s (very epic) show at the Bruce Mason Center.

My favorite photo from the few I snapped – more on flickr.

This is Sufjan Stevens’ last moment on stage last night. It was a technically terrible shot but I really loved the moment, the expression, and black and white is quite forgiving!

Breathtaking show, I loved every minute.
