Eugene McLaughlin’s Brilliant Photos Of The 2013 Leonard Cohen Birmingham Concert

19 Compelling Images: Sept 8, 2013 Birmingham Show

These additions to Eugene McLaughlin’s remarkable portfolio of Leonard Cohen concert photos are from the 2013 Birmingham show. Making the accomplishment all the more impressive are the limitations on his photographic equipment:

I managed to persuade security to let me take my camera in with my most discrete lens (my cheapest $100, smallest 50mm and one of my favourites). They confiscated the lens that I normally use, which meant that I couldn’t bag any close up face shots. I also didn’t have a spare memory card, which meant I had to delete some shots on the fly.


I am republishing selected posts from my former Leonard Cohen site, Cohencentric, here on (these posts can be found at Leonard Cohen). This entry was originally posted Sept 15,2016 at, a predecessor of Cohencentric.
