Pride Festival / by Sarah Robertson

Back in June I went to the SLC Pride Festival and took the opportunity to document the experience. It has been a long time since I have had a chance to do any street photography and it was surprisingly fun. Usually I am so full of dread when I shoot on the streets - I'm convinced someone will yell at me and threaten to destroy my camera.  But everyone was so friendly and willing to let me take their picture. Let me tell you - that almost never happens. It really spoke to the essence of what the Pride Festival is - people were open and proud of what they were doing, what they were in part of. It was a refreshing crowd to be around. [Shot on Portra 160 taken with a Canon AE-1]
