Photographer's Note

The eternal fire has burned for 5000 years in Varanasi to light the funeral pyres. To die here in this most holy of all cities, is to attain the end of reincarnation. Life is suffering, rebirth endless, till you are perfect with your God. The bodies burn every hour, every day. The city is India condensed, crowded, often dirty, beggars, crooked rickshaw drivers, everything in full force. The old section streets, are a maze of narrow ancient buildings, cows, temples,wonderful little shops, and smiling faces. You are so far back in time, to wander here.
