Photographer: Alexei Kazantsev
I was not interested to go see Mardi Gras Indians that Super Sunday. I had seen them already, during Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest, but a friend insisted I go. When we arrived, I was blown away by the Indian tribes moving like a giant snake through the ocean of spectators. I was trying to take a good photo of the Indians, but each Indian was encircled by 5-10 photographers who were trying to do the same thing as me. Luckily, almost everything in nature comes in waves. I took this shot in a break between two waves of people.
