This 1956 image of Marc’s always reminds me of why I fell in love with photography and why I always return to it like a trusted friend when I am in need of comfort and inspiration. It is everything a great image should contain. Simplicity, elegance, honesty, tenderness and insight. I have never been to Varanasi but Marc takes me there on his wings. It is of course beautiful in its composition but it is its humanity that just touches the heart. Marc is like a great choreographer or orchestra conductor. He moves through life and takes us with him and awakes our feelings in a crescendo of emotion. A rare gift, Thank you Marc.
