“If a photographer cares about the people before the lens and is compassionate, much is given. It is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument.” Eve Arnold
Born in Paris in 1987, Sarah Bastin is a freelance photographer who got her start shooting concerts in the basements of Montmartre before eventually moving to Vancouver, Canada. Inspired by the emotions and energies shared between large groups of people, her photos are candid documents of the where, when and who of various contemporary music scenes. Bastin has previously worked with SPIN and several independent labels in addition to her contributions for Red Bull Music Academy. (Aaron Gonsher – Red Bull Music Academy)
