Handpan players are so of my favorite subjects! Probably because I have a mild obsession about this instrument. Here are a few selects from HANGOUT USA 2016 Handpan gathering in Asheville, NC. It was quite fascinating to photograph almost 30 portraits in 2 days. I didn’t get to attend any workshops due to the fact I was working to get these shots, but I did meet a lot of handpan players from all over the world: Brazil, Portugal, Germany, Italy, South Africa, and many other countries. Some of the most epic handpan jams and concerts happened at this event. These shots were taken with natural light underneath an old barn.
