Rome "Ca Ira" concert images up for auction Print E-mail

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.

A selection of these images have been made in limited edition, high quality prints, signed by Roger himself and put up for auction.

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.

We caught up with Mark to find out more about his work on Ca Ira in January 2006, and you can read our interview with Mark here on this site.

Mark has been back in contact with us regarding the auction. He told us that due to the interest in the prints from around the world, he decided that eBay would be the best way to make them easily available to a wide audience.

There are six signed prints, carefully produced with archival ink on watercolour paper. Roger himself owns a complete set of six, so if you get one (or more!) of these, you'll be in good company!

Here are the links to each of the prints:

Our thanks to Mark for letting us know about these prints...

To visit Mark's website, go to 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.
