About the Book
The photographs are not moments in music that we typically see in the journalism of the music festival scene, they are candid shots of Festival life, the experience we all sign up for. There are photographs of people and still life in somewhat documentary style, often with abstract or juxtaposed points of view.
Why do we like music festivals? These photographs attempt to answer why, it’s the atmosphere, it’s the hedonism, it’s the laughs, it’s the music, it’s the sense of community, it’s the mud, its those fuzzy memories, the distant stage, it’s the camping, it’s the freedom to be whoever you want for a few crazy days.
The Festival is bigger than any of the bands, and it’s the crowd that makes the festival.
