Banaras Backs

Terry Burrows has created an intriguing visual essay of people clandestinely photographed from behind, sitting or squatting on the Ghats (steps) along the banks of the river Ganges in Varanasi (Banaras) in India. Burrows’ photographic series provides an oddly impersonal view of private moments of contemplation or indifference and collectively have a calming, meditative effect on the viewer.
