KREWE DU KANAVAL

Arcade Fire's Win Butler and Régine Chassagne joined forces with Preservation Jazz Hall Band to celebrate Haitian culture with a day of festivities in the city of New Orleans. I still can't believe I got to be a part of it... One of those days I will never forget. 

 

FLYING LOTUS AND THUNDERCAT

Red Bull Music Academy Festival LA Presents: Flying Lotus and Thundercat at Hollywood Forever cemetery. 

Yup, this show was at a cemetery and it was pretty rad and trippy! Flying Lotus has been one of my fav acts to photograph throughout my career and I have to say this new 3D set up is awesome. I wish I could show you more photos but these are the ones that have been approved by his managment so far! 

LUCHA VAVOOM

Oh my! So my good friend Jesus got randomly offered very last minute to host a Lucha Libre - Striptease - Comedy Show hybrid called Vavavoom here in Los Angeles. He messaged me something like "Do you want to come with and take photos at this event? Sure you could get some crazy stuff." This kind of  show was a first for me and it was nuts and sold out and I felt like I had stepped into an alternative reality. I had so much fun because I was shooting for myself and had no shot list or guidelines of any sort. I didn't want to get too close to the ring because there were a lot of photographers who were actually working and I didn't want to get in their way (The chaos was real!). That sort of worked out in a way because I feel that I was close enough to capture the energy but far enough to give the images a bit of a voyeur vibe. By the way, my friend Jesus killed it at hosting! I feel like we'll both be back!

FORM Labs presents James Blake, Hundred Waters, Moses and David Moore

Oh my. This was a super intimate preview concert for the upcoming festival FORM and it was totally magical! It was very hard to shoot because you could hear a pin drop and people were sitting down and very focused, so it was hard for me to move and shoot without interrupting the show. 

Every performance was absolutely beautiful and breathtaking. Every time James started singing I died a little bit inside. Me and everyone else! 

Can't wait to get to shoot the actual festival in May. If you're a music lover, you should check it out here: http://experienceform.com/
