My sister is in India right now for the next month and I have been hearing bits and pieces about her travels and adventures. Although I love to travel, I have yet to go to this part of the world and I'm so eager. When I think of India, two things immediately come to mind for me - the colors and the festivals.
Recently, I came across the incredible photography of Poras Chaudhary. Some of my favorite photos of his are of Holi - The Festival of Colors. Holi is celebrated as a welcoming of Spring, and a celebration of the triumph of good over evil. What that translates to in action is an enthusiastic dropping of inhibitions, as people chase each other and playfully splash colorful paint, powder and water on each other. When I go to India, I'm definitely going to make sure its during this festival because do I ever want to join this celebration!
Poras is a freelance photojournalist and documentary photographer based in Northern India. He is a completely self-taught photographer and is best known for his color work and unique compositions. If you want to find out more about him or buy his prints, check out his website.
Have a Happy and Colorful Friday!
A Whole Lotta Love,
