Welcome! EDIT: IMAGES UNAVAILBLE

Welcome to my new blogging page! A couple weeks ago I photographed the notorious Palmer Fest street fest on Palmer Street in Athens, Ohio. Spring semester at Ohio University is notoriously known for its street fests. Every weekend until the last week of finals, young people crowd the backyards, front lawns and porches of homes hosting parties along a designated street.

These fests are by no way condoned by the university, and the heavy police presence reflects their attitude. After the street fest I headed over to Lake Snowden, about a 15 minute drive from Athens, to photograph hip-hop singer Juicy J perform at a concert.Here are some of my favorites from that weekend!

EDIT: All of the images were somehow deleted and are therefore unavailable to view. Sorry 😦
