Henry Rollins – Travel Slideshow

Über Jahre hinweg hat Henry Rollins die Welt bereist – stets dabei: seine Kamera.

In Travel Slideshow nimmt Rollins sein Publikum mit auf seine Reisen über Baghdad und Timbuktu und erzählt die faszinierenden Geschichten, die hinter seinen Aufnahmen stecken.

Ob auf Tournee als Spoken Word Artist, Frontman der Bands Black Flag und der Rollins Band oder als Alleinreisender: Henry Rollins kann nach unzähligen Reisen mittlerweile aus einem breiten Bildarchiv schöpfen. Mit seiner grenzenlosen Neugier interessieren ihn vor allem wenig bereiste Gebiete in Destinationen wie Nepal, Sri Lanka, Sibirien, Nord Korea, dem Südsudan und dem Iran.

"For many years, I have documented my travels all over the world with a camera. Not always easy but always worth it. Many of the photos have a stories behind them. Now and then, I gather several images, show them to an audience and tell those stories.”

Wird Henry Rollins beschrieben, so werden oft so viele Labels wie möglich in einen einzigen Satz gepresst: “Rollins is many things,” schreibt die Washington Post, “diatribist, confessor, provocateur, humourist, even motivational speaker…his is an enthusiastic and engaging chatter.”

Entertainment Weekly beschreibt ihn als “Punk Rock icon. Spoken word poet. Actor. Author. DJ. Is there anything this guy can’t do?”, TV Guide nannte ihn sehr prägnant “Renaissance Man”.

Will man Henry Rollins allerdings nur mit einem einzigen Wort beschreiben, so wäre das unweigerlich "Workaholic": Wenn er nicht gerade die Welt bereist, hat er einen vollen Terminkalender mit Auftritten als Autor, Schauspieler, DJ, voice-over artist und Fernseh-Host. Im Moment hostet Henry Rollins außerdem eine wöchentliche Radio Show auf dem kalifornischen Sender KCRW und schreibt wöchentlich Kolumnen für LA Weekly und den Rolling Stone Australia.

 

 

Henry Rollins – Travel Slideshow

For many years, Henry Rollins has used his camera to document his travels around the world. Join Henry for an intimate evening as he tells the fascinating stories behind the photos he has taken, from Baghdad to Timbuktu.

Rollins will present a special performance drawing on experiences and his vast archive of photographs. “For many years, I have documented my travels all over the world with a camera. Not always easy but always worth it. Many of the photos have a stories behind them. Now and then, I gather several images, show them to an audience and tell those stories.”

In describing Henry Rollins, the tendency is to try to squeeze as many labels as possible into a single sentence. “Rollins is many things,” says the Washington Post, “diatribist, confessor, provocateur, humourist, even motivational speaker…his is an enthusiastic and engaging chatter.” Entertainment Weekly’s list includes “Punk Rock icon. Spoken word poet. Actor. Author. DJ. Is there anything this guy can’t do?” TV Guide has more concisely called him a “Renaissance Man” but if Henry Rollins could be reduced to a single word, that word would undoubtedly be “workaholic”.  When he’s not traveling, Rollins prefers a to keep a relentless schedule full of work, with gigs as an actor, author, DJ, voice-over artist and TV show host to name a few of the roles that keep his schedule full.

Rollins has toured the world as a spoken word artist, as frontman for both Rollins Band and Black Flag and as a solitary traveler with insatiable curiosity, favouring road-less-traveled locales in places such as Nepal, Sri Lanka, Siberia, North Korea, South Sudan and Iran.

Henry currently hosts a weekly radio show on L.A.’s renowned NPR affiliate KCRW, in addition to writing weekly columns for the LA Weekly and Rolling Stone Australia.
