Without fail since I first arrived in Bloomington as a student in 2006, I have somehow always managed to be out of town the weekend of the Lotus World Music and Arts Festival. Usually the festival falls during James Dean Weekend when I’m out of town at the Ducktail Run in Gas City, Indiana. This year, however, the festival was a weekend later and I finally had my first opportunity to attend and photograph Lotus. I experienced a sliver of what is a very expansive and beautiful collection of world music and art. Now as a card-carrying Bloomington townie, I’m looking forward to photographing the festival more extensively in the years to come.
