Snowdown: Voyeurism vs Interaction…

There are post that are timely and those that are not. Simple fact of life. Photography. I want to open a discussion that is valuable to everyone. The idea of a moment; moments witness and those we create. No matter the venue, no matter the culture, we perceive, create and effect.
As photographers, photojournalist; we will ultimately represent the scene. No matter how much we choose to involve ourselves-we play witness.


A shutter captures the moment, our presence interprets history.
Period.
I chose these images because they reflect both sides of an intricate and interesting small town tradition.
Snowdown.
Durango is filled with characters of all background, but perhaps their is no match to that which the residents exude every winter in during the annual Snowdown celebrations in the heart of this historic mountain town…

Durango folk take to the streets in the long standing tradition of Snow Down festivities last Friday night. Close friends, perfect strangers, and good whisky make for an evening of photographic opportunity on this cold Colorado evening!

Enjoy! – Jeremy
