“The oldest living city in the world”.

This is a portrait of Pritvitraj who is a local champion of Girkoraman Kushti and trained by a Russian coach.
I shot this picture at sunrise near Scindia Ghat along river Ganga in Varanasi (Benaras).
It belongs to a new topic about wrestlers which I show here with no PP work for a change.
The gym where we did those pictures is facing river Ganga which gave this vivid colours so early in the morning.

When we started the photo session, Pritviraj was posing like a “pehlwan” (wrestler in Hindi) but I wanted candid and natural poses in order to show his true nature which is a mix of shyness and innocence hidden behind the warrior attitude that he usually prefers to show.
