PAPER THIN

'As a person sheds worn-out garments and wears new ones,

likewise, at the time of death, the soul casts off it's worn-out body and

enters a new one

The series portrays the paper thin sarees and dothi's of the women and men who spend their final days close to the Holy river Ganga, reflecting on life in preparation of Nirvana. The garments, worn out by decades of use, are the very last of their earthly possessions. They are washed every single day as they have to be clean for the highly anticipated rituals on the cremation grounds nearby.
