Varanasi, India, 2019

A bird’s-eye view from the verandah of Brijrama Palace, a beautiful heritage hotel in the old city of Varanasi that overlooks the holy Ganges river. It took 20 years to restore the derelict royal residence to its current glory; the interior is wonderful (it’s like a luxurious mini-castle) but I spent most of my time out on the main verandah, watching all the goings-on below. Like the bird in flight we can see right up the Ganges and across to the other side, which is completely submerged during the monsoon season.

Limited edition photographic print, signed and numbered by Louise Hawson

My images are printed on beautiful archival pure pigment cotton rag paper by the same master printer who produced my exhibitions at the Museum of Sydney. If you decide you’d like your print framed, it will be done by an equally skilled framer in a lovely raw Tasmanian Oak.
