The photographs accompanying this week's "2012: The Year in Music" RFT feature story are part of a series called After the Show by St. Louis-based photographer Theo R. Welling. Here’s how he describes the project: "I set out to photograph musicians the moment after they finished a show. I wanted to capture the drainage of emotions, the sweat and the exhilaration of performing. Playing in a band is a release for so many. By bringing a plain white backdrop and photographing individual portraits of the band members, I hoped to keep the focus on the musicians who work so hard to put on a show."
