A book of photographs by Séverine Dabadie
Text by Christiane Etchezaharreta and Séverine Dabadie
Well travelled and well versed in the ways of the world Séverine Dabadie and her long time friend Christiane Etchezaharreta finally discovered a new reality in Varanasi or Kashi as they so lovingly dub it. Inspired by the antiquity they decided to produce a book that would make Varanasi available to all. Coming from Basque Country both have travelled widely together Séverine with her ever-ready camera and Christiane with her flowing pen. This is their first attempt at a full-scale book but they assure us that there may be more to come. Séverine Dabadie though has over the past ten years displayed her photographs in many exhibitions.
