1 if we’re honest, when we were first asked to photograph the governors ball in NYC our first reaction was ‘huh?’. because we are hired to primarily to shoot music festivals for this company, we were a little baffled about documenting a fancy dancy ball… but sure! yes! definitely! several minutes later a quick google search proved us ridiculously wrong… the governors ball is indeed a music festival and it’s one of the most original and fun-filled events we’ve ever had the pleasure of attending. located on randalls island, the gov ball is most easily reached by water taxi and once you get through the gates, your every sense is bombarded in the most fabulous ways! there are art installations everywhere, meandering showgirls on stilts, a roving mariachi band…. all that and much more before you even get to the music stages and tents. we photographed some of our favorites that we had been waiting to see like interpol, the head + the heart and foster the people – we also saw and heard new artists that we have come to love like tv on the radio. when we weren’t on the island, we enjoyed our time in the city and had 4 of the most wonderful and memorable days of this year – we can’t wait until 2015! 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46
