Kashi - City of Light
June 10—August 15, 2010
In Colton's first show at Anastasia Photo, twelve black and white panoramic silver gelatin prints explore the ancient city of Varanasi in India (the literal translation of which means ‘city of light’), one of the oldest cities in the world. Varanasi has at various times been the center of Muslim, Jain, Buddhist, and Hindu religions, all of which co-exist there today. Colton's luminous images capture this holy center through its routines of daily life such as bathing in the river and navigating a fishing boat.
