“The oldest living city in the world”.

I took this picture at sunrise near Scindia Ghat along river Ganga in Varanasi (Benaras).

It is part of the series about Indian wrestlers in Varanasi which I show here with no PP work.

Here Pritvitraj is posing in a very classic way, he is the local champion of Girkoraman Kushti and trained by a Russian coach.

The gym where we did those pictures is facing river Ganga which gave this vivid colors so early in the morning.

Pehlwan means wrestler in Hindi.

“The oldest living city in the world”.

This is another picture taken at sunrise near Scindia Ghat along river Ganga in Varanasi (Benaras).

It belongs to the series about wrestlers in Varanasi which I am showing here with no PP work.

This is Vinod who is also trained by a Russian coach, he has also a little “shop” down the ghat where the gym is standing where he is selling pan, thea, water and sweets.

The gym where we did those pictures is facing river Ganga which gave this vivid colors so early in the morning.

Pehlwan means wrestler in Hindi.

Since that day Vinod became a recurrent model who often works with me for fashion photography.
