Giant Rangoli

I took the Panasonic GH2 on its first serious shoot yesterday to photograph the creation of a giant rangoli (Asian Indian art form) in Southampton. I was very pleased with the cameras performance, particularly using the Metz 54MZ1 on it later in the day. You can see the results at http://gerrywalden.zenfolio.com/p20230634/slideshow

Re: Giant Rangoli

Interesting series if you follow the slideshow.

Did the exercise have any long term purpose?

The purpose was almost that it had no purpose. I understand that originally small ones were made outside of houses each day to welcome the Gods, and to feed them (you will notice that a lot of the material used is pulses of various kinds). They developed into an art form, and the artist responsible for this one has done them worldwide. They are not expected to last more than a day, and with the torrential rain we had yesterday I think that may be about right.

Art Asia sponsored this one, and sponsor south Asian arts projects in the city. We have a relatively large south Asian community going back many years.
