On the streets at SXSW
South by Southwest is a mixture of film, music, interactive conferences and festivals held every year in Austin, Texas. It’s a highly creative two-week event where musicians, artists and technology innovators come to gather and share their work and ideas.
Just prior the festival the MSNBC Photography Department launched its official Instagram feed and featured the work of photographer Wayne Lawrence as he hit the streets in Austin to capture the spirit of SXSW and the many characters that descend on Austin for the conference, the events, shows, concerts and festivities.
