RIOT LA 2016 is currently underway in downtown Los Angeles and this is my 3rd time documenting the festival. It’s always one of my favorite events to photograph each year. With standup, improv, podcasts, music and more, RIOT artists are always pushing boundaries and experimenting, and as the festival’s lead photographer, I’ve always been afforded the freedom to do the same.
So thank you to the performers and organizers (particularly the festival’s creator, Abbey Londer) for the privilege of telling your story. I hope that my photos bring back the excitement of the weekend long after it has passed.
