Photographer Captures the Faces of the Holy Men of Varanasi



Looking back on my travels around the county, there was no city that felt more like what I envisioned of India than Varanasi. From the Ganges and it's bustling banks to its narrow alleyways congested with cows and the many Hindu holy men who come to the city on pilgrimage.

Brooklyn-based photographer Joey L. captures the many Sadhus and religious students of the city in his portrait series the Holy Men of Varanasi.

Alternatively, you can watch filmmaker Cale Glendening's short documentary called Beyond, which follows Joey in India as he shoots his Holy Men series.
