have attended several performances by Danish singer, composer, poet and wizard
with words, Carsten Valentin Jørgensen. But only photographed him twice.
First time was at a rock concert at Rebæk Søpark, arranged by HIP
in Hvidovre on 4. September 1977. You can see a selection of the 1977 photos at

time I cought him with my camera was 2. August 2002 when he gave an outdoor performance
in Tivoli, Copenhagen in front of an enthusiastic audience, which ignored the

Det regner i mit hjerte
02. Flimmer fra en fjerner
03. Alverdens turbulens
04. På gyngende grund
05. Neon nok
06. Spildte bedrifter
Det si'r sig selv
09. Mit lille reservat
10. Fraklip fra det fjerne
11. Endnu en vinter
12. En stor dag
15. Ude af syne

Below you can view my photographs from Tivoli, taken by my tiny
Canon IXUS-330 digital camera. Though they are not optimal live photos, they cover

I had heard him live prior to that, but the first time I photographed CV was at
a rock concert at Rebæk Søpark, arranged by HIP in Hvidovre on 4.
September 1977. As you can see it was quite a different CV we saw those days.
And it was at the time C.V. Jørgensen was still a rock band.
