snap December 2009: Kevin Frayer goes to the fair in Pushkar, IndiaDecember 11, 2009
Kevin Frayer is a friend and former Winnipeg photographer now living in Delhi where he works for the Associated Press. The Boston Globe’s Big Picture photo blog has an entire gallery of Kevin’s photos from, well, I’ll let them tell you about it. Then click on the link that follows to view all the photos.
“Pushkar Mela (or Pushkar Fair) is an annual five-day camel and livestock fair, held in the town of Pushkar in the state of Rajasthan, India, where over 25,000 camels are traded each year. The fair draws thousands of tourists, camels, camel traders, racers, locals and Hindu faithful who come to bathe in the sanctified Lake Pushkar – until the final day, Kartik Poornima, a Hindu holy day celebrated on the full moon day of the month of Kartik. Collected here are a handful of photographs from Associated Press photographer Kevin Frayer, from his trip to this year’s Pushkar Mela.”
