Think you have seen every Varanasi shot worth taking, think again. This is a delight. Too many photos in this part of India are grabbed, the results having large ethical question marks hovering over them. This is candid, gentle, clever and, to use a normally hideously overused word, timeless. It arrests my eye, I dwell on this for a while –the hardest currency of any photograph. I love the movement of the cleaner, the calmness of the Sadhu, the different languages on some of the many long-faded advertising notifications. A difficult shot, no, but perfectly composed. Some geek would probably pick holes in that too, but this works, everyone’s Indian cup of tea? I doubt it, but it would be dull if we all agreed. I love it Martin - you got it to a tea.
