I didn't share these photos of my time at Ozora Festival last summer last year. It was such an intense 10 days and I just didn't have the words to describe it, and even this will be brief - I'll let the photos tell the story.
A year has now passed and I've been thinking about it, so finally am sharing the festival through my eyes. I do love these photographs - being immersed and capturing the story of a place and time, the people and the culture is one of my faaavourite things in the world!!
There were so many absolutely beautiful, alienating, magical, terrifying, weird and wonderful moments which I journaled about a lot about at the time... I learnt a lot (mostly that I just cannot handle any length of psytrance), had new perspectives, met some amazing people, some I am still friends with and who I see as real Earth angels.
All photos were shot on my Nikon F100. It was mostly 35mm Portra 400 and some 35mm Revlog Kolor film, which you can buy here (these are the ones with the funky colours going on). I prefer the Portra shots because it's just my favourite film type, and the ones on Revlog came out a bit muddy and I don't love the tonal quality of them. In some ways they add to the effect though, and it was definitely cool to try it out anyway.
