Photographer's Note

A work trip has recently brought me to the mystical banks of the Ganges river in Varanasi.

I can not recall ever being more mesmerised than I was as when I arrived in this holy town. As you discover the city you enter a state of meditation and mystery that captivates your heart and nestles there to stay - for as long as our daily western lives allow.

The guide with whom we floated on the Ganges must be one of the most serene people I have ever met. His wisdom and spirituality have lead to great knowledge as well as extraordinary encounters.
He introduced us to this holy man who has been praying at the same ghat in Varanasi for the last 45 years. Their friendship and bound was touching and inspiring.

The encounter with this wise man and the timeless magic of Varanasi are still circling around my head like a morning mist covering the banks of the Ganges river in its untouchable mysticism.
