Photographer/director Xavier Zimbardo went to India to shoot the Holi, also known as Colours Festival, and came back with these incredible images.
"You've managed to capture the total insanity , vibrancy and incredible culture of our Country in this ! I've never seen India like this ! I've played Holi, yes but This is just Brilliant ! I do remember seeing some of the Holi photos in one of your books ! But the fact that You've actually understood the reason for this Festival is so humbling & I must say, my appreciation for you art has rooted much more deeply now ! Thank You , My Dear Friend ! This is one of the most Cheerful gifts this Christmas ! I'm going to share this with Everyone I Love"
« This movie is exceptionally well made, and was a collaborative effort including many technicians. It's incredibly difficult to photograph and video in such an environment, and I wish there was some indication as to how the photographer and his team managed to keep their cameras and lenses safe from the hurled powder. While the 5DMark II is claimed by Canon to be weather-proof, its innards could easily be affected by the fine powder. »
"The stills truly capture the madness, the joy and the true essence of the festival of colours … "
"Wonderful Video...showing all aspects/facettes of the HOLI festival. "
