During the Easter holidays 1997 we set out to explore the area between Delhi and Varanasi (former Benares). We drove from Delhi Airport directly to Agra, where the Taj Mahal lies on the banks of the Yamuna River. From there we continued to Varanasi, which is located on the the northern bank of the Ganges River and is the holiest city for all the Hindus. In the vicinity of Varanasi lies Sarnath, where Buddha preached his first sermon. We went on to Khajurâho (Tantric sandstone reliefs), Jaipur (Palace of the Winds) and finally returned to Delhi, where we decided spontaneously to make a 4-day-trip to Kathmandu, Nepal, before we had to return home.
Altogether I shot
16 rolls of Ilford 400 black and white film, so the 99 photos on display
represent only a tiny section.
