The Red Bull Illume Makes a Stop In Denver
The Red Bull Illume is an annual competition that Red Bull holds for extreme sports photographers to take the best sports action shot. Red Bull categorized the photos into 1 of the 10 different category themes. This included: Close Up, Energy, Experimental, Illumination, Culture, New Creativity, Playground, Sequence, Spirit, and Wings.
I was fortunate enough to catch the show on the last day it was being set up in Denver and caught it just before it was closing. The Red Bull Illume was being held in the center of the Denver Perform Arts Complex in downtown Denver. It was a public event since all the photographs were on display outside and really made it accessible. It was pretty remarkable to see these photos and how the photographer took the photos.
Red Bull seem to be continuing its involvement with other aspects of the extreme sports industry. What I really enjoy is seeing how the media/arts department is becoming more integrated.. There is so much to the extreme sport lifestyle that it missed out or forgotten about. These photos really seem to capture those moments and really bring out the true overall nature of the extreme lifestyle.
If you haven’t witnessed one of the Red Bull Illume exhibits it is definitely a must. Check out the site at the bottom to see all the city stops.
Here are some of my favorite photos I was able to view at the gallery.
Hopefully the show comes by soon again!
