There's this rule in my book of concert photography, and it's simple: When someone sticks their finger in the air, you gotta press the button.
I count myself as fortunate to have photograph Rage's set at Lollapalooza, because only 25 photographers out of all the press at the festival were allowed into the pit. The main reason for this limit was to give security the maximum amount of space in the pit to deal with crowd surfers and people who needed assistance, a choice that shut out the vast majority of press at the event.
This shot of Zack de la Rocha is just a teaser from Rage Against The Machine's performance at Lollapalloza. Stay tuned for the full set, coming up soon!
