Atmospheric photographs of Thaipusam

The world’s Tamil community celebrated Thaipusam over the weekend, a highly visual affair with devotees taking part in a street procession, some carrying decorated Kavadis on their bodies, some with piercings through their tongues and bodies. We spotted these marvelous fresh snaps by Paul Cowell, who perfectly captured the festival’s evocative sights and intense atmosphere of the festivities that took place in Singapore.
