For the third year running, I was proud to serve as the photography/videography coordinator for DC’s annual Funk Parade – “a one-of-a-kind day fair, parade and music festival, celebrating Washington DC’s vibrant music and arts, the U Street neighborhood, and the Spirit of Funk that brings us all together.”
Although dubbed the “Funk Parade”, the event is really a day long music and performance festival running from early in the afternoon to late at night, with a participatory parade in the middle. Now in its third year, the parade was bigger and there were more performers on more stages and venues then ever before.
This year I did less shooting myself and instead focused (ahem) my energies on organizing nearly 20 photographers from DC Focused, a community of photographers that chronicles life in the Wasington DC metropolitan area. With so many photographers coordinating efforts, we were able to capture the festival and parade extensively and artistically.
