Artist Manoj Raj Documents India's Holi Festival with a Stunning Video Portrait Series

A vibrant Hindu tradition known as a springtime festival of color.

Despite garnering a reputation in the West as an excuse for a pigment-streaked party, Holi is actually an integral part of Hindu tradition and is known as a springtime festival of color.
