The Ganges River is a symbol of Indian civilization as old as Athens and Jerusalem, a source of poetry and legend, now on the brink of an ecological crisis. For centuries people have journeyed here to the heart of Hindu culture in India.
A symbol of Indian spirituality as old as Jerusalem and Athens, the river goddess Ganga once flowed wild and free, ripping through the Indian landscape with vigor and might from the roaring icy waters in the Himalayas down its murky end in the Bay of Bengal. For more than seven years I documented the lives of the people who live along the river Ganges, witnessing first hand the devastating effects of climate change, industrialization and urbanization.
