I was lucky enough to go to the enormous music festival that is Bonnaroo, held in Manchester Tennessee, June 9-12th. The music was spectacular and the people, both local and from far away, were wonderfully friendly and fun. What I didn’t expect was the large graffiti element to Bonnaroo: the festival site was surrounded by orange walls that began as visual odes to past Bonnaroos. As the festival went on, the walls were spray painted, chalked, postered and drawn on until they became a living, ever-evolving border of pop culture and art.
This is the photo project of Irina Werning, entitled “Back to the Future“. Irina is a photographer based in Buenos Aires. Irina has asked people to recreate their childhood photographs. I love childlike enthusiasm, so this is just awesome. I may need to team up with my little sister and make my own!
