Another year, another Afropunk. The festival keeps growing, with bigger crowds and bigger performers. Saturday was somewhat hard to navigate, with Solange bringing out massive audiences. Sunday was a bit more chill, with Raphael Saadiq closing out the weekend. I feel like I didn’t get as many epic shots as last year, but it was still a fun time. Good seeing everybody!
This weekend welcomed the Afropunk Fest to Brooklyn, a yearly celebration of music and culture. This was the 12th installment (including expansions in Paris and Atlanta,) and my 5th time attending (RIP Afropunk 2011, a victim of Hurricane Irene.) Thousands of beautiful people come to Afropunk ready to be photographed, so it’s always a perfect opportunity to take your camera and get some quality shots. Shout out to everyone I took a picture of, the familiar faces I saw, and the new people I got to meet.
