Nagaland is one of the 'seven sisters' states of northeast India - at the border with Myanmar. It's home to a number of indigenous tribes, which each have their own customs, language and dress. Two of the things which bring them together is Christianity (Nagaland is one of the three states in India where the population is mostly Christian), and the Hornbill Festival, also known as the festival of festivals. It happens in the Kisama heritage village, near Kohima (the capital), for 10 days every December. Following are some portraits I took there, along with photographs of other places I visited in this state.
