During a Japanese event Bart of Tatake-Taiko, the only professional Taiko group in Belgium, was telling me that he was looking for a photographer, who could capture the soul of Taiko. I didn't react at that time, because I had no stage experience whatsoever.
But when I bumped into him again just before a performance I volunteered for the job.
It was a great experience, I had full access to the stage. This is one of my favorites.
