I’m on the road all summer as the tour photographer for Lilith. The all-female music festival ran each summer from 1997-1999 when it was know as Lilith Fair. Sarah McLachlan is the headliner every night, but over 100 musicians will rotate in over the course of the tour.
As a photographer, the challenge is to make unique images beyond the standard concert photos. Here are some from the first few days.
