What I love most about festivals is the feeling of freedom I get when I walk into a venue with my camera. There I can do everything that I love: create visual art, dance, meet new people, etc. in an environment where everyone else has the same freeing mentality. It’s like a vacation away from reality to a strange utopia where exposed breasts covered in pasties might be the least interesting part of the weekend. My simultaneous thirst for personal exploration is as dire as my thirst for community and connection. Next time you see a photographer with a handlebar mustache doing weird things with lights and a camera at a festival say “hi”.
