Description

A superb, thick and gorgeous book on Benares (Varanasi) illustrated with over 600 colour and black and white photographs (from the 1950’s up to the late 1990’s), and including a long and comprehensive text section, index, maps, glossary and bibliography.

A rare combination of creative photography and cultural history put together by one man, this book both visually and textually is the most massive presentation of this extraordinary city ever attempted. Unflinching in his observations, yet enormously sensitive to his subject, Lannoy records the everyday life of Hinduism’s most sacred city.

And it is not through the formal acts of ritual, but through the most ordinary gestures of riverside and marketplace that the charged, heightened drama of life in Benares unfolds. Indisputably the best book of its kind. Richard Lannoy, internationally known photographer and writer, has been visiting and photographing Benares since the 1950’s.
