On any given day or week in a city such as Los Angeles, you can find something new and outside of the regular routine to do. From June 16 – 26, the Hollywood Fringe Festival takes over various spaces in the slight area of one square mile in Hollywood. Photographer Mariah Tauger spent a couple days cruising this scene to capture a glimpse of what this year’s festival has to offer. She spent time behind the stage, following the “freaks,” taking in the shows and walked away experiencing passionate and creative people in this city. I think this is a must for next year. 4 Clowns member Alexis Jones makes some last-minute adjustments before a performance.
