More about this project
Ganga Ma is the result of a ten-year photographic journey along the Ganges by Giulio Di Sturco, documenting the effects of pollution, industrialisation and climate change. The project follows the river for over 2500 miles, from its source in the Himalayas in India through to its delta in the Bay of Bengal in Bangladesh.
Di Sturco began documenting the Ganges in 2007 and became witness to the devastating effects of climate change, industrialisation and urbanisation. The river is on the edge of a humanitarian crisis and ecological disaster—a metaphor for man’s conflicted approach to the natural world—both revered and desecrated.
