event versus experience

Event photography is good and well and does what it's supposed to: document the affair at hand. And for the most part, event photography of any sort-- music, wedding, fundraiser, etc. is intended to be fairly clean cut. Even so, I'd rather capture the experience than the event. Last weekend, I spent time once again shooting Chicago's North Coast Music Festival. Here's a short hand take at the experience of the festival versus the event of the festival. .
