South India, The Theyyam Festival and Holi


Harry Fisch

Indian Festivals and Tours

A South India photo tour to Kerala for the night Fire Theyyam and Elephant Festivals with a fascinating exploration on our own deluxe house boats ending at the Kerala Backwaters. More than 20 years visiting india year after year. Good boutique hotels, great food.

With two possible pre-tour extensions: an introduction to Delhi, Jodhpur, the Taj Mahal and Jaipur or the other one to the very special Varanasi

And a post-tour extension, to the exciting “special” Holi

The Lath Mar Holi is a very special and unique “advanced” Holi festival, that takes place in a series of villages in India. At Lath Mar Holi we will be really close (and we will be part of the show) to the people “playing Holi”, in both towns of Nandagaon and Barsana taking our pictures

On the Varanasi 5 days Optional Extension we will get to know a different city to the one other tourists see. With time to enjoy our stay in contrast to the hustle and bustle of Shamans, boatmen, pilgrims, cows, tourists, barbers, and fake Sadhus. We will cross to the other side of the river where no one normally goes, to admire the city from another perspective and witness the daily coming and going of pilgrims.

Please visit my personal work on Varanasi as well as some posts on my Varanasi at dawn . This is where I took in 2012 the picture that won and later lost the National Geographic Photo World Contest. Here a few from Kathmandu.

But mostly, we will discover the people. From the throngs in the markets, weaving between ancient Moorish buildings in Marrakech to the dazzle of Meknes, these jewels of the land will not disappoint any photographer, veteran or amateur alike.

We will be staying in good 4 stars hotels, and in a nice and individual de-luxe large tents two nights in the desert to capture the dunes before they shift to other shapes, and live in the desert as we cross the golden sands that cover the country, and a trip there with us means going in style.

Ghana & Benin and the Voodoo Festival


Harry Fisch

The Benin Voodoo festival is, our excuse to create a West Africa Benin and Ghana (as an optional extension) incredible photo tour. 15 days in total with incredible photographic opportunities

The Benin Voodoo festival is, certainly, the most active, passionate, colorful, and biggest of those celebrated in Africa. And the pilgrims do not come only from corners of Benin but from Haiti, Brazil, and other countries around Benin such as Togo.

On this special date thousands of devotees go to Ouidah, the center for the followers of this religion, if for nothing else to receive the blessing from the highest religious representative – the chief Vodun of the city. Far from being anything malignant or dark, the festival and its rituals have become a great and popular party over the years.
