Painted Tigers

From the first brushstrokes at 3 a.m., to a room full of men waiting to have their bellies transformed into great cats in the early afternoon, to the stripping off of the paint with turpentine at 10 p.m., I was behind the scenes August 31st photographing the team that wound up winning the 2015 Pulikali Tiger Dance Championship— the team from Kottappuram Temple. This is just a preview of the project I'll do a more professional job of processing a larger selection of images from this spring when I return to the USA.
