FESTIVAL PARTICIPANT

FESTIVAL PARTICIPANT - The photograph was taken at Mutharamman Temple near Tiruchendur in the state of Tamil Nadu, India. The woman was a devotee attending Dusshera Festival in this temple. She has painted her body with the colour ‘BLACK’. With her long hair and red eyes, she is looking attractive wearing plastic bottles, so I took her portrait in the temple compound.
