Gerry Walden | Vaisakhi

My hometown of Southampton is very multicultural with many ethnic groups, which is one of the reasons I like it so much. One of the biggest groups is the Sikh community from the Punjab area of India. Vaisakhi is a major festival in the calendar, and celebrates the birth of the founder of the Sikh religion. Photographing in the community I always feel very welcome.
