Studies Under Way

Studies Under Way


This is another picture shot in the new workshop of my friend Durga in Varanasi (Benaras).

Those studies in progress pinned on a wall are part of a new topic about hijras, those members of “the third gender”, neither man nor woman. 
Durga Charan Das is a young painter living in the “City of Lights”, he is painting amazing bodies making love or sometimes alone but always with sensuality and strength, with something special that reminds a lot of Eugene Delacroix’s work…
Durga has already won several prestigious awards in India and now exhibitions of his work are starting in Europe.
