The Grand Trunk Road - Behind the Scenes
Festival of Holi
Life is just so in your face here. It can be very overwhelming when you first come here. The traffic is mad, and the streets are full, and there’s stuff to negotiate all the time. There’s aggression and there’s intimacy. There’s people with no money at all and there’s people with loads of money. And it’s all right in your face!
We were lucky enough to be in Delhi, India's capital city, during Holi (Festival of Colour), and were keen to capture some playful Holi scenes with people throwing colourful powder at one another. At one of Delhi’s markets we came across a group of young men who were happy to pose for photographs but only after Tim engaged in a little colour throwing revelry with them. I escaped unscathed. Tim captured one of the seminal images of the exhibition (first image) and is still trying to get yellow powder off his camera lens (second image)!
See where Delhi, the capital city of India is.»
