This isn’t a normal life, nor is the speed in which the festival sucks you in. Home to car to highway to parking lot to hotel to festival to warp speed. Minutes, seconds. Friends. Scenarios. Deals. Partnerships. Collaborations. Potential. So much potential. “You work for Blurb?” “I LOVE Blurb.” A nice intro to this year’s event. For the third time in a week I enter a room where one of my images hangs. I had forgotten about this one as well. There is always a haunting feeling of missing out here because there is so much going on. So much work to see. I tour the gear and vendor lounge. Fuji, Canon mostly. Check out Atlas Packs. Two lectures last night. Henry Leutwyler. Sheila Metzner. And after the projections, the small gatherings. Fire and smoke.
