Scenes from the LI Fringe Festival

If you are unfamiliar with the workings of a Fringe Festival, it is basically a mixed art showcasing that runs for several days in multiple venues. The acts consist of theater, cinema, dance, music, and visual arts; mostly obscure and edgy material that exists on the "fringe" of the mainstream. The very first Fringe Festival occurred in 1947 in the city of Edinburgh; since then, Fringe Festivals have caught on in cities all around the globe. Long Island experienced its first Fringe Festival in September of 2009. For three days and nights, the campus at CW Post and the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts became a haven for the arts. It all happened again in September of 2010 and I'm happy to have had the opportunity to be involved both years. It's been great fun. The following gallery of photographs was taken by me over the course of both seasons. I hope you enjoy. Thank you...

"For he that will love life, and see good days,
let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips
that they speak no guile: Let him eschew evil,
and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it."

~1 Peter 3:10-11
