The upcoming Goa International Photo Festival is the brainchild of Shantanu Sheorey, who is the founder of The One School Goa, one of India’s leading interdisciplinary, creative media schools. Ending on 21st February 2015, the festival is an initiative to bring together photographers from all around the world and to promote Goa as a creative hub. It will showcase the works of established and emerging Indian and International photographers to help discover, inspire and develop the next generation of photographers and creative thinkers.
The festival is also set to showcase photographs by Sheorey himself, and he will launch The One Mag – India’s first app-based, digital photography magazine for the serious photographer.
Here are few images shot by Sheorey of the Puri Jagannath Yatra – he covered the festival from 1980 to 1985, and aims to come out with a limited edition book from his extensive body of work.
