Stereophonic XII: Through The Lens of Philip Mercier
Stereophonic XII – Sackville, NB – January 22-24, 2015
Stereophonic Music Festival is campus / community radio station CHMA 106.9 FM‘s annual fundraiser. Taking place in the isolated university town of Sackville, New Brunswick, the festival brings acts from across Atlantic Canada and afar out of hibernation for three days of winter bliss. Now in their twelfth year of causing a ruckus, people came out in droves to partake in the winter’s best party.
Armed with a Pentax 67, a flash, and a bag full of expired B&W film, I tried to capture a little bit of the magic of this wonderful thing that is Stereophonic.
