The Delhi Republic Day parade is the largest and most important of the parades marking the Republic Day celebrations in India. A show of force by the Indian military. It is so overwhelming to see our soldiers work so hard for the main day of the event.
Being a photographer and from the land, I come from it's hard to photograph things that are around me. This particular photograph is a series that I am working on for years. Which I decided to submit for the entry for the competition "Memory". The photograph shows Indian Navy officials lined up for the Republic day Parade Rehearsals. Every year the parade takes up in the capital, and every year it's exciting to see our soldiers work really hard to stand out from the year before. My name is Allen Thomas and I am a travel Documentary Photographer from India.
Judged by Tim Barber:
Inspired by the Grand Prix, Takahashi Miki’s work, I thought it would be fun and interesting to make a compilation of the widely diverse and eclectic work submitted for this contest. When edited and organized, the “memory” submissions, sent in from dozens of artists, become a kind of collective-memory-collage, a dream sequence of disparate clues from a kaleidoscopic narrative.
