Holmes Photographic Art
Let your dream devour your life, not your life devour your dream...these
words by Antoine de Saint-Exupery embody the spirit of the work of Darren
Holmes. A life devoured by a dream, and the result is photography where
emotion rules. Technique and material concerns have little place in this
world, Darren's works deal with other, simpler matters: those of the soul.

24/07/05 Delhi, quick mail to my friend Andreas Hering.
The second day, yesterday, was great, birthaday of a guru Sahib something....(i´ve
forgotten his name), the siks celebrated his birthday with a big party
in their temple, with a cloth on my head given to me by them I entered
their temple, I didn´t take photos, traditionally everyone gets
food for free many poor if we can call them poor if not miserable.
I took some photos in the middle of the people who receive the food, fat,
thin, rich, poor, a present from the guru brings luck..it´s a blessing
from God. The mob, incredible... [>]
| Due to the lack of participation,
the contest with the Photojournalism theme will be extended

can denounce, teach, explain, try to improve, different realities
of those who see them.

reaches its maximum expoent. With it, what's far becomes closer,
and the knowledge and attitude of humanity before iself grows and
Also, it's photojournalism that writes the history of the world,
of small worlds, so that later can be remembered how it was, compare
as it is.
We wait for your histories, accusations, informations, realities.
