Eye-Popping Colors Captured at Utah’s Holi

Once a year, the Holi Festival of Colors, celebrating the arrival of a new season, takes place around the world. Crowds of people playfully pelt each other with vibrant paints, adding a wildly colorful hue to the environment. San Francisco-based photographer Thomas Hawk caught some amazing photographs of this year’s celebration at Spanish Fork, Utah.

Hawk’s shots of these people with wide, open-mouth smiles are infectious and you can’t help but smile along with them.
