SPLORE Festival - A glimpse
In honour of this competition, I wanted to express some imagery from my time as a photographer documenting NZ's biggest dress up festival 'Splore'.
I was accepted to shoot as a volunteer 5 years ago as they opened it up as a competition to shoot the event and have your work exhibited the following year. With no festival experience and a simple application of my 35mm work along with an egoless description of why to pick me.
5 years on i've bared witness to some unforgettable moments at Splore - due to my literal last minute notification about this competition and my festival archives locked up in Oz. This was the selection I could make of available shots. I respect whomever reads this and honour the comments given in regards to the work. Much gratitude. Dane Scott.
