Istanbul, A spellbinding city where cultures collide. Over the centuries, many cultures have added their mark to Istanbul. Today, you can experience those influences firsthand by exploring its mahalles (neighbourhoods). From the holy sites of Sultanahmet and the 19th-century European elegance of Beyoğlu to the high fashion of Nişantaşı, the vibrant cafe society of Kadıköy and the football-loving streets of Beşiktaş, it’s easy to see why travellers say that Istanbul isn’t just one city, but multiple cities within one ~ Tripadvisor

Antalya City is one of the prominent and modern cities of Turkey that has a number of tourist sites. As the city encompasses the Mediterranean coastline, it has plenty of stunning beaches and scenic destinations. Some of the regions have mountains on the backdrop along with the blue sea which makes them even more alluring. The mesmerizing waterfalls, rivers and lush green of Antalya are exceptional.

maha kumbh by rohit vohra
@ Rohit Vohra

Kumbh” in its literal English translation means “Pot”, which emerged from “Samudra Manthan”(Churning of the Ocean) between Gods and Devils. The term ‘Mela‘ means “Fair”

In the mystical tapestry of India’s spiritual landscape, the Maha Kumbh stands as a rare celestial event, a confluence of faith, tradition, and humanity that occurs once every 12 years. Scheduled for 2025, this grand spectacle promises to be a pilgrimage like no other, drawing millions from across the globe to the sacred banks of the Ganges.

@ Vineet Vohra
@ Vineet Vohra

The Maha Kumbh is not merely a gathering; it is a cosmic alignment of rivers, rituals, and revered saints, where the spiritual energy is palpable in the air. The event is rooted in ancient Hindu mythology, symbolizing the churning of the ocean of milk for the elixir of immortality. Today, it represents a profound journey of self-discovery and devotion, attracting seekers and believers alike.

Maha kumbh mela by Rohit Vohra
@ Rohit Vohra

At the heart of the Maha Kumbh is the sacred dip in the holy river, believed to cleanse one’s sins and bestow divine blessings. Pilgrims and sadhus, draped in vibrant hues, create a kaleidoscope of devotion as they embark on this transformative ritual. The atmosphere resonates with the sounds of hymns, prayers, and the joyous clamor of divers cultures converging under the spiritual umbrella of the Kumbh.

@ Vineet Vohra

The 2025 edition is poised to be a photographer’s dream, offering a visual feast of humanity’s collective faith. From the intricately adorned sadhus with their ash-smeared bodies to the fervent chants rising with the smoke of sacred fires, every moment encapsulates the essence of devotion. It’s a rare opportunity for photographers to capture the raw, unfiltered beauty of a spiritual carnival that transcends time and space.

APF is organising a 6 day intensive workshop which is tailor made to cater to needs of anyone who wishes to train their eyes to find order in chaos of this years Maha Kumbh Mela held in Allahabad. Street photography is very rewarding but at the same time, one of the hardest genres to master.

As if plucked from a whimsical fairytale and set down upon the stark Anatolian plains, Cappadocia is a geological oddity of honeycombed hills and towering boulders of otherworldly beauty. The fantastical topography is matched by the human history here. This region’s accordion-ridged valleys, shaded in a palette of dusky orange and cream, are an epiphany of a landscape – the stuff of psychedelic daydreams.

The men throw colors on women and the women fight back with batons. The aim of the men is to install a flag on the temple of Radha at Barsana and claim victory.
