A day in Varanasi

India, 2018


From dawn to dusk, A day in Varanasi follows the course of light through a series of candid scenes exploring the spirituality and aesthetics of the holiest Hindu city. Built on the banks of the Ganges, Varanasi has indeed significant religious importance. It attracts hundreds of pilgrims every day who come to perform rituals along the Ghats, stone steps leading down to the famous Indian river. In Hinduism, Ganga is seen as a divinity and believers take a dip in its sacred water in the hope of having their sins washed away and purify their soul.
