IN­DIA, 2013 ( Right)

Men's Style (Australia) - - Feature -

“This is prob­a­bly one of the most chal­leng­ing of In­dian fes­ti­vals to cover. Walk­ing through the streets, peo­ple play with colour, mean­ing they throw colour into your face and wipe your face. Keep­ing your equip­ment in work­ing or­der and/ or from be­ing de­stroyed by the wa­ter and coloured pow­der is a feat. I first used plas­tic bags to cover my cam­era and then a makeshift un­der­wa­ter hous­ing to keep it op­er­a­tional. I like the calm­ness of this im­age, the boy sit­ting as wor­ship­pers gath­ered in a tem­ple in Barsana. It was ut­ter chaos around him, with devo­tees throw­ing colour and ex­plo­sions of pow­der across the whole area.”
