This year, one of the featured photographers is Moby.
The same Moby that you probably know from the Southside with Gwen Stefani and the Extreme Ways theme music for the Bourne trilogy has also been an avid photographer for over three decades.
His photographic collection Destroyed will be one of the highlights at this year's Snap! Destroyed captures a musician's tour from his perspective, from the energy of the crowd to the moments of tedium and isolation in forgotten spaces.
Destroyed is also what happened to the only copies of thousands of Moby's personal photographic portfolio.
Moby discusses how he came to love photography and how learning using film instead of digital affected his photo taking style in part one of a two-part online interview series.
In part two (below), he discusses how he lost thousands of digital photos and the regrets over not having quality copies of his early film work.
Fast-forward to 4:55 in the video for the heart-wrenching story of how one of our generation's great artist learned the need for both digital preservation and photographic archiving the hard way.
