Life on the banks

the culture surrounding water,INDIA 

IN VARNASI AND UDAIPUR, INDIA

Sometimes I wonder if my fascination with water and our interactions with it stem from growing up landlocked in a city far away from fast flowing rivers and pounding waves. A recent photo assignment took me to India where I experienced a culture intrinsically bound to the holy H2o that flows through its lands. Here a series of black and white photographs I made documenting life on the banks in Udaipur and Varanasi.
