Rainbow Gatherings

I have no words to describe how I felt when our dear friend Alexandra Talavera sent us a picture from this Rainbow Gathering series. It's amazing the way Benoit Paillé captures the essence of each being. The natural feel of these pictures makes me feel that I'm there, as if I were looking through a portal. Paillé has been going to Rainbow Gatherings for 7 years now but it wasn't until 3 years ago that he decided to start photographing his family. Thanks Benoit for sharing this amazing images of your beautiful family with the world. We're very happy to see this is happening. For me, this is Utopia.

Rainbow Gatherings are temporary intentional communities, typically held in outdoor settings, and espousing and practicing ideals of peace, love, harmony, freedom and community, as a consciously expressed alternative to mainstream popular culture, consumerism, capitalism and mass media.
