Folks at a Festival Photos
Photo Art by Stefan Stenudd
Photos of the Malmö town festival, August 2001.
Folks at a Festival is a series of photos taken on the Malmö town festival. This festival is an annual week of music from several outdoor stages, of markets and a number of booths selling fast food from all over the world.
I strolled around on the festival area, which is always in the very center of the town, and took photos of nothing but other people, strolling like me, listening to the concerts, eating exotic snacks.
I allowed myself some drastic editing in Photoshop:
I dimmed the usually bright, sometimes outright noisy colors, which are difficult to avoid with a digital camera - well, to some extent with any camera using color film. But also, I spared some color on parts of the pictures, as a way of focusing on those details - certain persons, expressions, scenes, in the sea of people.
Here's a video filmed photo montage of the photos, with me playing randomly at the piano on the soundtrack.
