We all bath to cleanse... this is a cleansing on many more levels than the physical. It’s ironic though that the water sanitization is no where near clean... The River Ganges; Kumbh Mela. •

Maha Kumbh Mela 2013: Makeshift abodes to cater for the millions that congregate for rituals that wash away sins accumulated and, for the chance to break samsara. •

You can find quiet time in what seems impossible in the chaos... these two pilgrims, which I imagine are friends, found themselves alone as the fog swallowed the 1000s of other people journeying to the first puja of the day. •

The locals at Prayag change with the needs of the area during Kumbh Mela - some farmers may use their land for setting up pilgrim accommodation to take advantage of the demand surge. They can earn more within the 55 days, than they do over the year from the land. This young man was a mechanic - he ferried boats over the Yamuna during Kumbh. We waited 4 hours for a boat to become available; we crossed, making a pit stop at the triveni which was a life-changing experience. •

India: A special place.
I had a short conversation with a photographer that I’d been following for a long time (he was giving a visiting talk). He said: “If you want to experience something amazing, go to the Kumbh Mela”. So it happened: 2013, Maha Kumbh - Prayag. Within weeks of hearing of this event, plans were put in place, and I was in the midst of this historical gathering with one of my oldest friends; sharing a tent. 
The whole experience changed my life in ways I am still discovering today. It also gave me the impetus to start my career as a photographer... I have been back 3 times since.
Here are some images that were made along the way. •

@justinmcnairn should be able to hold that indefinitely right?
