As all of ours were booked out, Jan bought her own camera for her trip to Varanasi, India for two weeks of photographing the Holi festival. She thinks that Varanasi is the holiest and most sacred city of India. A place Lonely Planet says ‘Brace yourself. You’re about to enter one of the most blindingly colourful, unrelentingly chaotic and unapologetically indiscreet places on earth.‘ India has some of the wealthiest people in the world and also the poorest.
One of Jan’s favourite photos of my youngest son’s school formal from grade 12. This was the first time he had ever worn a suit and his older brother was giving him words of advise and a protective arm.
