Where Ganges, Yamuna, and Saraswati Merge. Faces of India;
Time & Location
About the Event
Artios Gallery is excited to present an exhibition of photographs by Vladimir Deming, “Where Ganges, Yamuna, and Saraswati merge: Faces of India.” Images on display reflect Vladimir’s fascination with the region and its people. These photos were taken over several years, mostly in and around Triveni Sangam at Allahabad (or Prayag), the most populous district in the Indian State of Uttar Pradesh.
Triveni Sangam marks the confluence of three rivers, two physical ones (Ganges and Yamuna), and one mythical – Saraswati. Believed to be where the Nectar drops fell from the pitcher held by Gods, it is a holy place in Indian culture and a site of the religious pilgrimage and festival Kumbh Mela held every 12 years. A bath here is said to flush away all of one’s sins and free one from the cycle of rebirth.
