For The Sep 5 Issue:
We’re after your images of hanabi, Japan’s fireworks festivals. More than just colorful explosions, the fireworks in Japan are community gatherings: some are tiny affairs set in a small park off the local shotengai, while others are massive city-wide events such as the annual Sumidagawa extravaganza. We’d like to see more than shells bursting in the air. Show us the people enjoying the festival, the vendors gathered to supply them, the crowds, the revelry and the, uhh, boom factor—whatever that means to you!
