Sundance is so much a festival of people, as well as films, that I started bringing a camera several years ago. This is the crossroads of the indie film movement, where big stars and little ones, famous directors and first-timers, meet because they have made films that fall outside the narrow boundaries of the mainstream distribution system. I shoulder in with the paparazzi to shoot Winona Ryder or Ashley Judd, but I also like to shoot folks I meet on the street, on the shuttle bus, or at a screening. To see them is to get the idea that Sundance is not so much an industry event, more of a family reunion, complete with patriarchs and crazy cousins.
