Fazal Sheikh | Ether
This is quite a profound body of work, whereby Sheikh photographs those who have travelled to the northern Indian city of Varanasi, on the banks of the Ganges, with the belief that this is a sacred place to pass away.
Shot between dusk and dawn, the images, mostly of bodies in the streets are both haunting, yet beautiful. The series is punctuated with images of fire and stars, alluding to earthly and cosmic powers.
The book is very nicely produced and worth checking out.
