I love Bookfest, I can’t think of anywhere else where you can see so many different types of people in one place. I love hearing the student conversations about Albert Camus alongside a kid with a brightly coloured dinosaur book! This was the first time I’ve taken photos here, and it was a bit of a challenge with so many people and so many colours. I ended up with more black and white than I intended, but I’m still pretty happy with the set overall. As an aside it’d definitely be worth coming here to shoot Brisbane fashion, so many really well turned out book-lovers!
