India: Varanasi to Bandhavgarh
Allahabad and Varanasi are India's holiest river towns. Allahabad hosts the largest religious gathering on the planet at the confluence of its sacred rivers. Art joines nearly 20 million pilgrims for a dip in the Ganges and captures images of Hindu holy menascetics who have renounced all worldy pursuits. Downstream, in ancient Varanasi, the sacred and the ordinary meet in a swirl of color, fire and ritual. Hindus strive to visit this spiritual epicenter at least once in the lives to bathe in the Ganges and cleanse their karma.
