Captured in the Crowd


It was during Matt & Kim’s rampageous set at Life Is Beautiful 2014 that I caught this blink-and-you’ll-miss-it shot. The energy, the emotion, the pure exhilaration—everything that describes the festival. So concert-going, music-loving, festival girl, if you are reading this, please know you are part of one of my most favorite photos to date. –Jesse J Sutherland, photographer

It’s life experiences that we use to write our narratives. From a trip abroad to a day volunteering for a heartfelt cause, these are the moments that define us. And what better way to reflect on these times than by capturing them through photography. In this ongoing series, we ask staff photographers, attendees and everyone in between to share a favorite image from the Life Is Beautiful festival and how that instance impacted their own story.
