Over 20 years, Lewis has captured the magical moments and ambience that make WOMADelaide unique. The images embody the inspiring mix of music arts and dance from around the world which the festival has presented over the past 20 years.
"WOMADelaide is my favourite gig of the year"says Tony, who has been at every festival since 1992. "I walk miles, and work really hard, but I love everything about it, and it makes beautiful photos."
Lewis's early career in newspaper took him to The Times of London, The Sydney Morning Herald and home to Adelaide for The Australian. Over 20 years' press experience taught him how to relate to people, work fast, think on his feet, and capture the moment. He went freelance in 2000, working five years for Getty Images covering news and major sporting events, and many of his pictures have been published globally.
South Australia's own Cibo will for the first time be part of WOMADelaide itself (9-12 March, Botanic Park), with an onsite cafe erving coffee and gelati in the brand new Internode Lounge. For tickets and details on the full line-up: www.womadelaide.com.au
