Sacred Sadhus Portraits @ 1998 Kumbh Mela & 2010 Maha Kumbh Mela

In 1998 I attended the Kumbh Mela in Hardwar, India. After many tests,without knowing it I became the official photographer of the Sadhus. These are but a few from about 100 portraits I made. Through out the 6 weeks I was to participate in the festival, I witnessed many magical events. But the best was developing my film on site and giving each of them their portrait as quickly as 2 hours later.

Now twelve years later I have returned for the follow up Kumbh Mela at Haridwar. I find old friends with the Sadhus and find out some of the cherished ones I knew have passed away.
