The title translates to, 'detail from religious ceremony being performed on the biggest Hindu holiday on the steps where India's most sacred river meets the oldest city in the world. For Hindus, this is the chief crossover spot – where the divine and human worlds meet. I tried to get as close as possible to showing, what cannot be shown, that invisible point where God and man might meet.
