I had never been to Las Vegas before, and this moment of the Lumineers is a highlight from Life Is Beautiful 2016. It was one of the best crowds of the fest. I remember snapping this photo from the middle of the crowd while everyone around me was singing along to “Ho Hey.” It still gives me chills thinking about it today.–Jashua Peter Grafstein, festival 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.
