Indian funeral

Varanasi- (India) - At dawn a dead is brought by a group of relatives and friends on the shore of the sacred Ganges for the ultimate purification before being cremated on pira.

I’m a non professional photographer keen on landscape, architecture and travel photography. I have a degree in mechanical engineering. My passion for photography began at my ninth birthday when I received as gift from my uncle a beautiful Kodak Retinette. Since then I have continued to take pictures although the hard engagement of the studies had a negative impact on my photographic works as well as many very challenging work periods. In the last ten years I started to take pictures with some more dedication. I often participate with satisfaction to some trips organized by the Nikon School.
