The music. The entertainment. The people.
The living and breathing atmosphere embodies the spirit of Austin. Giving hope to hundreds of artisans, from around the world. By giving them a single opportunity, to perform their life’s work in front of an audience and that one special person. A person, whom might propel their dreams, even further.
Every time I get to work and photograph shows for SXSW, I get to see those moments. Through the mist of the murmuring noises and the final sound-check preparations, the artists gets their gear in place. Moving slowly, but consciously, as they get into their mental mindset. Everything now depends, on the next few moments. They stand up to the microphone. With one last breath, they release all of their tension and fears. Finally, they begin.
This past week, I had the opportunity to photograph several artists. Each of the artists and bands, bringing forth the same Austin spirit.
The Music.The Entertainment. The People.
The living and breathing atmosphere that surrounds Austin, is a power within itself. As it draws people, both near and far.
