Some of you were fortunate enough to be at Roger Waters' world premiere live performance of Ca Ira, in Rome in mid-November. Those that were, or those who read our concert review and looked at our gallery of pictures, will have been struck by the wonderful imagery that was projected onto the screen behind the black-clad orchestra.

and looked at our Some of you were fortunate enough to be at Roger Waters' world premiere live performance of Ca Ira, in Rome in mid-November. Those that were, or those who read our concert reviewgallery of pictures, will have been struck by the wonderful imagery that was projected onto the screen behind the black-clad orchestra.

The images were created by photographer Mark Holthusen, who was hired by Roger and Sony BMG Music a mere month before the show, to substitute traditional set design with projected photographic illustrations.

The screen featured over 120 images from the many taken by Mark. From concept to final production, the entire body of work was produced in a breath-taking 40 days! His striking and quite unique style brought the story to life at the concert, being the sole visual narration.

To showcase his work for the project, Mark has created a stylish website, packed with a sample of his images for Ca Ira, along with some video footage, showing images from the concert. There are even some special wallpapers that have been created for the site, which can be downloaded.

The eagle-eyed amongst you will recognise some of the "in-concert" shots as being those taken by us at Brain Damage. Mark approached us to use these, as this was the one element he was missing from his body of work.

To visit his website, either click on the pictures to the right, or visit www.MarkHolthusen.com/caira/. The images on the site can be viewed as a slideshow, with Roger's music playing. It gives a good impression of what the audience in Rome experienced back in November.
