Lathmar Holi in Nandagaon Temple, Uttar Pradesh, India: Part Three

Earlier this month I travelled to Nandagaon from Mathura to shoot the Holi celebrations that this small town is famous for. After the throwing of paint and powder at the Radha temple the Shepherds from neighbouring Barsana gather with shields waiting to be beaten by gopis (shepherdesses) from Nandagaon, who gather in the streets with Lathis (long staffs), quite a scene!
