Next week I’m flying out to Honolulu for the giant arts festival known as Pow! Wow! Hawaii. Booooooom is gonna be a media sponsor again, and actually we’re teaming up with WeTransfer to produce an official video for this year’s festival! So keep your eyes peeled for that.

In the lead up to the event the team has just released a video re-cap of Pow! Wow! Taiwan, the most recent festival, which took place in Taipei.

Vincent Ricafort did a great job capturing the fun vibe of the event. You may recognize a lot of artists I’ve featured on Booooooom (I’m in there a bit too), and if you’re wondering who the dancing people are they’re the organizers and volunteers who worked tirelessly to put on an amazing event. Thank you to everyone involved, I had the best time!

Watch the video below!

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”
