Raksha Karo, by Sharad Patel

Taken during Raksha Bandhan last year. Raksha Bandhan is an Indian festival which celebrates the relationship between Brothers and Sisters. The central ceremony involves the tying of a rakhi (sacred thread showed in the picture) by a sister on her brother’s wrist. This symbolizes the sister’s love and prayers for her brother’s well-being, and the brother’s lifelong vow to protect her.

Photographer: Sharad Patel (New York, USA) Registered
Sharad Patel, an undergraduate student pursuing a degree in Graphic Design, is passionate about photography. After spending his childhood growing up in Mumbai, India, he moved to New York, USA during the summer of 2007. Even though always had a keen interest in photography, it was only after his friends introduced him to Flickr, that his interest escalated. He regularly uploaded pictures he took and received comments from his peers on Flickr. This allowed him to fine tune his vision and motivated him to develop his skills. He hopes that one day, when he is a successful graphic designer, he continues to capture the moments which make life special through photography.

    Different but eye-catching!

    I think you(Light&Composition) magazine should just hire this person: full-time, intern, freelance, whatever. This photographer clearly has a unique eye and I believe diverse pictures, like this, in your magazine would engage new markets.
