The Holi festival, also known as the Hindu Celebration of colors, is celebrated every year by millions of persons by throwing pigments of colors on people’s faces.
Originally the Holi festival celebrated the fertility of the land, today the participants rejoice for the abundant crops and the defeat of evil.
Holika was a demoness in Hindu Vedic scriptures, who was burnt to death with the help of God Vishnu. The story of Holika Dahan (Holika’s death) signifies the triumph of good over evil. Holika is associated with the annual bonfire on the night before Holi.
Last March, I had the opportunity to go to India and participate at the Holi Festival in Varanasi. Taking part of this holy celebration and being able to film it was in my bucket list.
Located on the left bank of the Gange river, the city of Varanasi is considered one of the oldest inhabited city in the world and probably one of the holiest cities of India.

“I am Nick, a freelance photographer.
In the past 10 years I‘ve been travelling and photographing around the world.
What I realized, though, was that I had gradually stopped seeking new destinations. I found a place that offered me a sense of stability and warmth where my inspiration and creativity amplified. Nature in all its’ forms was still surrounding me: Snowy landscapes, deep canyons, lakes and rivers, vast forests and of course the sea.
In the end, I think I found my destination, a place that has nurtured me, and has always been so close to me. That makes me feel home!

“A project made in 4 months recorded in different locations of the geography of Navarra.
I wanted to reflect different environments changing the color tone in each scene, after making the white balance, thus generating a very different environment, dark, inospito and inert, heavenly, ….. trying to find the beauty of still life. A trip through different spaces through doors trying to awaken sensations. A walk of the soul.”

“A Drowned Forest Exposed”: A Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film of the Theewaterskloof Dam In South Africa Directed By Liesel Kershoff.
Filmed, Edited and Directed by: Liesel Kershoff
Music by: Alexandr Shumalev (“Beautiful Dawn”)
“To appreciate the yang in life, we need to experience the yin. Nature is teaching us a lesson. We need to take notice and learn from our mistakes and stop wasting our resources.”
“Close to my hometown of Caledon is the 7th largest fresh water catchment dam in South Africa, the Theewaterskloof Dam. With the completion of the dam in the 1980’s, together with farm houses and infrastructure, a forest of pine trees were flooded on the banks of the river and eventually died. These dead trees has become quite famous amongst photographers and provide fantastic photo opportunities when water levels is low. It is a mere half hour drive for me and a favourite shooting location ever since I started photography. I know this landscape like the inside of my hands.
In the beginning 2017, reports started to surface in the media of a drought gripping the Western Cape Province. The Theewaterskloof Dam provide the greater metropol of Cape Town of fresh drinking water and it was at it’s lowest level ever since completion. The water situation was growing dire and the drought proved to be the worst experienced in the area in 100 years.”
Location: Theewaterskloof Dam, Hottentos Holland Nature Reserve, Western Cape Province, South Africa

“Paris Noir” is a Cinematic Time-Lapse Music Short Film Directed By Benjamin Trancart.
Filmed, Edited and Directed by: Benjamin Trancart
Music by: Juliette Gréco (“Paris Canaille”)
“By dint of searching, sometimes you’ll finally find… what you were not after.”
“Since past years, I often dreamt of shooting time lapses. This night again, I was on top of a slate metallic roof lit by the moon. Viewpoint was awesome, opening on the seaside with a red lighthouse sweeping the mist. I was licking the salt on my lips.
But in those dreams, i’m always late setting up my camera or i just forgot to charge my battery missing the occasion to capture this ephemeral moment.
Positive side of it is that during those dreams my brain has created fantastic images, unbelievable landscapes, volcanoes, and luxuriant forests. Some places that will never exist but that i’ll never forget. However i open my eyes and i still go and look for those places.
I’m aware that we have to live things and not look at them through the lens of a camera but harvest time is an incredible moment.
Maybe we’ll meet one night on a slate metallic roof messed around by a pale moonlight.”
