This photo was taken in the Phoenix Park in Dublin at a a Snow Patrol concert, the day after another concert was marred by a wave of violence that resulted in fatalities. The previous days events seemed unworldly to this crowd of gig goers who saw the event through unscathed. This photo was taken at the perfect moment when all eyes appear to be on my friend Jess who was hoisted up into the air. I think the shot encapsulates that festival feeling, joy,giddyness and the sense of communal worship (usually to the stars on the stage but for this shot, the worship for my friend Jess).
Location: Phoenix Park, Dublin, Ireland
