Residency at Sanskriti Pratishthan

21st Surajkund Crafts Mela

More Magic 7th February

Wonderful day today - went to the 21st Surajkund Crafts Mela on the outskirts of Delhi. It was a mad riot of colour and hundreds of stalls were selling craft products from Andhra Pradesh. I bought some fabrics that are really beautiful, hand embroidered, ikat, tie dye, wood block printed. The images speak for themselves, the people were lovely always smiling and helpful, bands helped to add to the atmosphere. I also attempted to photograph the journey back as it really described what Delhi is like -some are out of focus but that also shows the busy, lively nature of the place.
