In early September of this year, I discovered a baby squirrel on the side of the road. With unopened eyes and just a downy layer of fur, she was unable to fend for herself. I picked her up and carried her in my hands to the nearest vet’s office, her small snout burrowing into my skin in search of food.
Calling it an airborne spectacle only begins to describe British photographer Tom Robinson’s Uttarayan Kite Festival photo collection. Featured on the site before for his Feet First series, Robinson travels frequently for his work, shooting for a variety of travel magazines, advertising, hotels and airlines. In the Indian state of Gujarat, Robinson’s photos for Gujarat Tourism chronicle the yearly kite festival that marks the end of winter. The celebration also serves as a reminder to farmers that the harvest season is approaching, although the actual kite flying involves people of all ages and walks of life.
