"In march 2019 I took on a trip to the north of India to document the festival of colours - Holi.
It would be fair to say, that never in my life I’ve ever experienced such a vibrant, playful celebration of being alive.
Spending almost two weeks in various places like Vrindavan, Mathura or Barsana I was particularly fascinated by how the children enjoy the playfulness of Holi.
With great anticipation they wait for this time of the year to prank everybody around them with colourful gulal powder and water pistols.
During the time of Holi they are allowed to play tricks on everybody around them and get away with it!
I found that absolutely amazing and loved to be part of it."

"This creative activity of the Divine is called lila, the play of God, and the world is seen as the stage of the divine play."
- Fritjof Capra, The Tao of Physics (1975)
