"RAINBOW SERPENT FESTIVAL" Portrait series.
I attended some of the first Rainbow Serpent festivals in my youth close to 20 years ago (I certainly don't feel as old as I sound). Inspired by my adventures and the festivals growth I returned this year to photograph a portrait series that would depict the festival goers love of electronic music and to capture its effect upon such a group of people. Inspired by the music, liberation from the constructs of society, their lust for life, maybe a few substances in some cases, or all four, for good or for bad I find it an interesting look into a segment of our society that is probably a lot broader than people may think. Within the images what I love is the realness of the people, their imperfections, mixed with their craziness, mixed with their showiness, mixed with their joy. I love looking at humans. I hope you enjoy the series.
