about this item

The acclaimed photographer ChristopherRoche offers a stunning panoramic portraitof Banaras, the spiritual capital of India. Banaras, or "Varanasi" in Hindi, is a Northern Indian city onthe banks of the Ganges in Uttar Pradesh. One of the oldestcontinuously inhabited cities in the world, it is also one of theholiest in Hindu, Jain, and Buddhist cultures. In this large-formatbook, the landscape and spiritualism of this beautiful citycome to life through the lens of award-winning photographerChristopher Roche. Spending two years covering the city's dailyevents, Roche turned his lens toward its holy men, temples,shrines, and religious ceremonies. He depicts the ubiquitouslingams and yonis, as well as the city's fabled burning Ghats--aseries of long, wide steps leading to the Ganges. Rarelyphotographed due to cultural restrictions, Banaras teems withlife, color, and emotion. In his large, brilliantly hued images,Roche manages to capture the throbbing vitality of thisimportant city as no one ever has before.
