    Reportage Online

    Through a soft diffusion composed mostly of dust, pollution and smoke, I spent days and often weeks over many years sitting by the banks of the Ganges watching the water softly caress the human beast. In an uneasy slumber the cities along the river cleanse their industrial and domestic waste into the riverbed at a slow but steady speed. Recent studies show that by 2030, the Ganges could cease to exist due to global warming, water pollution and construction of dams along the river.

    Photographer Giulio Di Sturco is nearing the end of his epic documentation of India’s Ganges river. The holy river is one of the world’s most polluted waterways, and its future is uncertain.
