Noted photographer Singh makes a personal pilgrimage along the Ganges--from the Himalayas, where the river arises among snows, through the villages of the Gangetic Plain, past Banares through Bihar, to the Bay of Bengal. Along the way, he captures the river in many stages, and captures also the lives of the people who live along it. His text is merely informative; his photographs (125, all in color) are magical works of art, freezing even the most tumultuous activity into luminescent tableaux that merge the mundane and the spiritual, the timely and the timeless. 10.75x9.5".
