MAHA KUMBH MELA, ALLAHABAD, INDIA


The Maha Kumbh Mela is a massive Hindu festival happening once every 12 years in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, India Millions of pilgrims come from all over India to celebrate 55 days of festival. I've been amazed by this event, this is the most beautiful gathering I ever participate to, millions of people living together, sharing everything, a lot of donation everywhere. We are approaching now to the end of the festival, most of the Sadhus will head to Banares in some time to celebrate Mahashivratri, which is supposed to be the most crazy night in India, I won't have the chance to be there physically. This is a serie of men portraits that I met during the festival, the few seconds of interactions i've had with all these single people teach me a lot on photography & interaction with random model I liked to shoot these portraits on the early evening, after sun set, when the artificial light of the streets appear.
