Yesterday was the 30th Annual Human Rights Festival in Athens, Ga. I was asked to shoot it for the Banner-Herald. Athens has a lot of festivals, so I wasn’t sure what to expect before I got there. Some of the festivals, like the Twilight Criterium (here and here) are massively huge. Others, like this one turn out to be fairly small.
I tended to focus on the kids because thats where the most activity was. The adult area was fairly empty while the bands played and the speakers spoke. That isn’t to say there was no one there, but they were mostly just standing around.
I think I forgot my notepad at the office, so some of these won’t have full captions until later tonight.
