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.
The positive energy buzzed around me throughout the fest, but it all came to an apex when Chromeo hit the stage in 2016. Their mesmerizing show blew me away and became the band that epitomizes Life Is Beautiful: high energy, excitement and one hell of a party you shouldn’t miss. –Anthony Nguyen, festival photographer
