15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Festival Love

This photo was taken at a music festival in a small town in California. It was an attempt to understand the culture surrounding music festivals as well as the alluring draw to being part of such an event. Is there a wide acceptance and love radiating throughout the festival or is it just a space to alter your mind and listen to a DJ play heavy bass influenced music? The answer proved to be very allusive but I did walk away in awe, with an appreciation for the giving spirit of humans.
