The artist

Jajgit Singh lives and works in Chandigarh, in northwest India, not far from the Shivalik mountains in the Outer Himalayas. When he decided to teach himself photography, it was primarily in order to explore and highlight the natural and cultural heritage of this region, with its wealth of temples, lakes and prestigious gardens. He thus creates a panorama of the enchanted sites conserved there and its inhabitants, who sometimes gather for traditional festivals as extraordinary as the “Holi”, a festival that is famous throughout the world for its incredible colours and legends: “Festivals are an integral part of the lives of Indians, they illustrate the wealth of the country’s cultural heritage. I like to express the importance of these Indian festivals and their meaning.” With sincerity and emotion, he is able to render intense moments of life visual, moments that are always in harmony with their environment. Through his photographs, Jajgit Singh truly enchants the spectator. The beauty of such spectacles and shared moments are like so many invitations for us to travel...  ... See more See less

About the artwork

This photograph was taken during the ?Holi? festival organised every spring in India, and particularly in the region of Braj Bhoomi. It shows the festivalgoers assembled in Barsana, one of the festival?s key sites. Singing and dancing to traditional music while showering one another with liquid paints or colourful pigments, they come to celebrate the victory of good over evil and the triumph of devotion.Here, the festival is in full swing, and it becomes difficult to make out individual faces, since everyone is covered in paint from head to toe and crammed tightly together. Here and there, pink, green or yellow clouds escape from the compact and unified cortege. Through the use of a high angle and close framing, Jagjit Singh nonetheless manages to extract himself from the crowd, without losing the excitement and tumult of the bustling crowd.
