The photos are faces of individuals smeared in Holi color. Further, the pictures are cropped to spotlight part of the face. All the faces within the photos are smeared with completely different Holi colors.
“I never imagined Holi as a form of art,” said photographer Dhruvin S in the accompanying caption on Instagram. “It’s almost like creating a canvas on a face. And you don’t have to be a painter or an artist to do this.”
In the following post, Apple has also posted a behind the scenes of the shoot. “I was really excited to see how colours would react on different faces, go really close to the subject and capture the micro details. I was surprised when I took the pictures,” said Dhruvin.
Apple has been running a #shotoniPhone campaign for marketing and promotional purposes for many years now. The images clicked for Holi too are a part of it where the camera capabilities of the iPhone 12 Pro series have been highlighted.
Apple on the social media post didn’t specify which iPhone — presumably iPhone 12 series — was used to click the Holi special images.
