Kathakali is a highly stylized classical Indian dance-drama noted for its attractive make-up of characters and detailed gestures. I photographed this katahkali artist while he was applying make-up and practicing dramatic emotions. Good Kathakali artists transforms into the character role they play and effortlessly perform the art form Kathakali.

    The colours transforme the image. I see some black like fear and some colours like happiness. In this photo I see a really transformation. ;)
