Historical Context:
Caleb Cain Marcus is a New York City based photographer who had dedicated himself to the search for the perfect balance between city, nature, man and the invisible. This photograph is part of a series and book by Marcus titled “Goddess.” The book and photographs are about a 1,500-mile-long trip along the Ganges river in India. Whether the river is visible in the image or not, its presence remains the main subject of each photograph, through haze above modern constructions, to seemingly endless miles of what many who live along the river consider holy water. The colors and atmospheric conditions create a presence of air and space in each image.
