Stay Grizzly - Grizzly Fest 2017 Polaroids

The 4th annual Grizzly Fest took place in Downtown Fresno, California on Saturday March 29th, 2017. Grizzly Fest is a one-day music and arts festival that takes over Chukchansi Park, our local baseball stadium, with over 12,000+ people to experience and celebrate the best bands, food, and businesses our city has to offer. In addition to the hyper-local approach to this event, event manager Aren Hekimian and promoter Aaron Gomes (Sound and Vision Foundation) brought national talent such as E-40, Dr. Dog, Lupe Fiasco, and Rebelution to the four stages placed around the stadium.

I had the opportunity to shoot Polaroids of the artists playing this event, on and off the stage, thanks to both Gomes and Hekimian. I used a Polaroid Sun 660 AF Camera and Impossible Project 600 Speed Type Film to capture all of the below images. Before you check out the photos of the event, please click the link for each and every artist and listen to their music! Without them, this photo series would not have been possible!
