“Right before I went to my first festival I was in a bit of a funk in my life, feeling somewhat apathetic about the dreary state of the world and was relatively uninspired. An old childhood friend happened to be passing through Toronto and was driving back out to British Columbia, where he had moved over a decade earlier. He talked about these festivals with a lot of passion. I was a bit skeptical and even a little cynical, but the idea of a road trip across the country was definitely appealing. It was about five days of driving across the continent and the trip climaxed with a three-day festival on a mountain. The setting was beautiful and the people had an optimism and playfulness I hadn’t experienced in a long time. I had a great time and loved shooting it. The openness and playfulness of the culture really drew me in. Since then I’ve been going to a few festivals a year and it’s become an integral part of my life.”
