2013 Boryeong Mud Festival / by Matt Treager

A few weeks ago my wife and I headed to the city of Boryeong, South Korea for it's internationally renown mud festival, an event celebrating the fine qualities of the local mud (clay). Needless to say, it was a bit different than some of the more tame festivals we've attended while in Korea. We arrived to a largely foreign crowd (ie: not Koreans) who were partying like they never left Cancun that one fateful summer. I'll spare my thoughts on representing your home country with dignity while overseas, but as a whole, it really was a blast and I had the chance to meet and photograph some really great people.

Here's a few photos for the highlight reel:
