Let’s carry the dream…
Sometimes I go for a ride in Kashi, the oldest part of Varanasi (Benaras) and I meet people who seem to come directly from the Judeo-Christian Old Testament.
On the main road passing through the Chawk there is an ashram with an arcade made in a very Bengali style and where a few people come to enjoy the sunset.
This is where I met this man who allowed me to take a few pictures.
I couldn’t help thinking of the Patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and the period in which they lived.
I believe this was because of his garments, the attitude and gestures he had and mostly that amazing winter light that also reminded me paintings about this topic by Rembrandt.
