Optimist: at the Holi Festival of Colors in Spanish Fork, Utah

Shot in slow motion at the Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork, Utah, Brian Thomson documents the local Holi Festival of Colors from 2011.

Every year, Hindus greet the turn of winter into spring with a splash of color — in some areas, a geyser of color. They call their celebration the festival of Holi, and Hindus across India and throughout the world share prayer, camaraderie, special food, and a general sense of mischief as they douse each other in dyes and colored water. The large festival has roots to many Hindu legends associated with the triumph of good over evil.
