Ganges River

Death Photographers of Varanasi

This is a brilliant documentary from Seeker Stories.

When Hindu Indians and Bangladeshis cremate their dead on the banks of the Ganges River, there are other rituals that take place to support the cremation: barbers shave heads and beards, firewood is brought in, and photographers document the dead bodies before they are burnt. This is a short documentary, beautifully shot, documenting the photographers and their process.

Incredible.
