Holi Hunters by Jim Shannon in Sidetracked

The latest edition of Sidetracked came out today and it features an article by Jim, reporting on our time together in India last March photographing the Holi festival.

Sidetracked is a beautifully put together travel and photography online publication which is well worth keeping an eye on – not least because I should have something in there in the next couple of months. If I can find the time to write it between all the work I have to do for the exhibition, that is.

Please take the time to read the article as I think it is a fantastic piece of writing, capturing the fun we had amongst all the trials and tribulations. It also looks great with many of his stunning photographs nestled alongside the text.

You can also see more of his photographs from Holi here, on his website.
