we at good press feel very lucky to live where we do. charlottesville is brimming with lots of the good stuff...food, music, scenery, thomas jefferson. and art. of all kinds. while grabbing brunch at blue moon diner last week, i came across a poster for the american festivals project which is showing at the bridge pai over in belmont. long story short, two photographers (ross and andrew) trekked across the U.S. of A for over a year (specifics are fuzzy at the moment) photographing the smaller, lesser known festivals that Americans partake in. Water tasting championships or prison rodeo, anyone? The show is really something, and if you're in charlottesville i highly recommend checking it out.
