I’d love to see something like this in person.
“You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” -Ansel Adams
I recently went to NYC to celebrate Holi /ˈhoʊliː/ होली. It is a festival mostly celebrated in India & Nepal celebrating the beginning of Spring. Holi festivities mark the beginning of a new year to many, as well as signifying the victory of good over evil and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair ruptured relationships. I had a great time learning to dance Punjabi and following the beat of the drums. Everyone was dancing with strangers as we would spread color on one another and just laugh with the joy that filled our bodies.. the whole day felt very light & free. There’s something beautiful about spreading smiles & human connections; it does wonders to the soul.. Here are just a few photos I captured to show the world a little glimpse of what Holi looks like.. Enjoy.
