Photographer's Note

The festival called "pooram" celebrated every year at Thrissur, Kerala, India. The highlight of the event is a grand show by thirty decorated elephants - fifteen on each side facing each other - and participants standing on the elephants display different coloured umbrellas one by one in competition. All the while. a phalanx of drummers belt out a heady rhythmic beat called "chenda melam".
