A portrait captures a moment that’s gone forever; they are impossible to reproduce. Street Photography: Savannah Food Day Festival. My goal in this series is to create a really awesome frame of people existing because they allowed me time to share their world.
I love the healthy community that is Savannah. A classic example of people coming together for a common good is the annual Food Day Festival held in Daffin Park, Savannah. Folks from all over show up for a day of health conscious contemplation. Animals straight from local farms, solar cooking aperatuses, children laughing sitting on hay bales, live local music on a bandstand, essential oils and hydro planters set the perfect environment for sharing in a people-centric ecosystem. Everywhere I turned I saw friends and smiles on the faces of strangers … I mean soon to be friends! Workshops and lectures happen under tents as participants crowd in close. My camera in hand, always, I engage the public and the stage is set.
A local artist and herbalist, Sarah was a delight, and her soulful interaction with me gave me the nerve to ask if I could photograph her. I feel my portrait shots don’t convey the beautiful subject the justice she deserves, and after our conversation I was thoroughly convinced this is the healthy, happy community I wanted to be a part of! Thank you Sarah. See you soon.
