Summary The main part of the little book consists of some 100 photographs shot by the author at Leonard Cohen's 1993 Berlin-concert. The photos posess the warmth and indiscretion of a telelens 5th row approach, and are as original as concert-portrait-photography goes. The author just made a passion for them and found no alternative to making a book out of them, for better or for worse.

Vlad Arghir also wrote a presentation, structured like loose notes for a (not really planned) interview. The text is in Romanian, aimed at a public with little or no access to the original material and is meant as a short introduction to the life and work of Leonard Cohen. Besides some personal comments, it contains what everybody knows. A short preface by a colleague of Leonard Cohen - Mr. Mircea Florian, a singer, musician and multimedia artist well-known in Romania, offers the view of the artist on stage on being photographed.

The English translation on separate sheet available. The Pont Publishing House "conflux"-series is a collection of books (more or less) simultaneously published in several East-European languages. The sales-proceedings go toward covering publication costs.
