13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People

This picture is the moment of the Gajon Festival of West Bengal , India. This festival is specially centered to Lord Shiva. It is arranged mainly by mendicants who are referred as “Gajan Sanyasis”. Here i have tried to capture a compositional balance of a man (Gajan Sanyasi ) with a sword in hand with the figure at wall behind of it. Both of the subject revel the essence of Power & The story seems quite interesting.
