Mel D Cole's Gorgeous Black & White Roots Picnic Photos

And now the ultimate Roots Picnic 2013 photo recap courtesy of Mel D. Cole of Villageslum--a fever dream of sweaty moments frozen in black and white with nothing but a flash, a zoom lens and an incredible ability to be in the right place at the right time; kids catching the spray of a fountain and the fans losing their mind every bit as iconic as the images of Macklemore walking the crowd framed against the sun, Gary Clark Jr.s guitar amp, Solange shaking her twist in a snaky starburst--in short, the images that will stay indelibly inked on the inside of our eyelids when we talk about this crazy, sunburnt, frantic, amazing Saturday.
