Poras Chaudhary

A shoulder injury when he played cricket professionally as a young man in India led Poras Chaudary to teach himself the art of taking pictures. Mr. Chaudhary has produced some of the most energizing, chromatically dense imagery of the Hindu festival of Holi that I have ever seen. Holi is also known as the Festival of Colors. It is a popular Hindu spring activity observed in India, and the Indian Diaspora. I came across his work during the festival, and revisited it again today, so I decided that I had to post his exceptional work.

The fact that I am able to capture a moment in time that is never going to come again is simply very exciting for me, and the fact that nobody can ever replicate it… No matter what…

Mr. Chaudhary has been working professionally since 2005, and already his eye is extremely distinct. He has had no shortage of awards, from Digital Camera Magazine’s ‘Photographer of the Year’ award in 2006 and the National Geographic Traveler’s photo contest Merit Award winner in 2008.
