The Colors of India 2018 Photography Workshop & Tour
“This is India; the land of dreams and romance, of fabulous wealth and fabulous poverty, of splendor and rags, of palaces and hovels, of famine and pestilence, of genii and giants and Aladdin lamps, of tigers and elephants, the cobra and the jungle, the country of a thousand nations and a hundred tongues, of a thousand religions and two million gods, cradle of the human race, birthplace of human speech, mother of history, grandmother of legend, great-grandmother of tradition...” - Mark Twain, Following the Equator, 1897
You'll be amazed at how well Twain's perceptive observations still hold up nearly a century and a half after they were penned. Our task is to capture bits of the India of yesterday and today with our cameras. India’s ancient monuments, including its most famous, the Taj Mahal, are just beginning of what this land of colors and contrasts offers the avid photographer. I’m very excited to announce the Art of Seeing Photography Adventure’s latest workshop, The Colors of India, Feb 22 –Mar 18, 2018. Join us for an immersive, photo-centric exploration of a culture carved by deep rivers of spirituality and history. Our itinerary covers the best of the must-see monuments but we’ll veer off the beaten path early and often in search of more authentic visions of Indian life.
· With its riotous colors, the Holi Festival is arguably the most photogenic cultural celebration on the planet.
· The holy city of Varanasi lies at the center of the Hindu universe and attracts millions of devout pilgrims seeking spiritual rejuvenation in the sacred waters of the Ganges river.
· Jodhpur, the Blue City, exudes such a relaxing vibe that you will be tempted to do nothing but park yourself on a rooftop terrace with a cool beverage and stare up at massive Mehrangarh Fort.
· Wake up for sunrise over Gadissar lake in the desert outpost of Jaisalmer Fort and then ride into the Thar desert atop a camel for sunset and a star filled night in the sand dunes.
The opportunities to make unforgettable memories and photographs on this carefully curated journey are literally endless. Join us and See for yourself.
