Equipped with lights, cameras and protective ear plugs, Photopoint spent a Sunday afternoon in late March at a Processional Drummers rehearsal.
This year’s Processional Drummers are strongly aligned with the concept of unification. They explain, “To become Processional is to put aside ego, emotion, self. We are invisible, we are the void, all that exists is rhythm”. To illustrate this, Photopoint worked with the drummers to create beautiful conceptual portraits for the group.

Not content with risking temporary tinnitus, our intrepid photographers also got up close and personal with The Aerie. Proof can be seen in the time lapse video below!
