Intimate and poignant reportage born from a three week trip in the outskirts of New Delhi, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Jaipur, Agra, Varanasi, Kalkota and many others. Roberto Pazzi in this, his photographic project wants to give voice to the poor (economically only) crowding the Indian metropolis. By the priests who pray for streets decked with turbans with bright colors that contrast with the local architecture, women lined faces with wrinkles that are begging on the streets. intense looks that can not fail to strike and make people think.

A sadhu in Varanasi (India). 
In Hinduism, a sadhu ("good man, holy man") is a religious ascetic or holy person. Although the vast majority of sadhus are yogis, not all yogis are sadhus. The sadhu is solely dedicated to achieving mokṣa (liberation), the fourth and final aśrama (stage of life), through meditation and contemplation of brahman. Sadhus often wear saffron-coloured clothing, symbolising their sanyāsa (renunciation). This way of life is open to women; the female form of the word is sadhvi. In 2014 an all-female akhada (group of sadhus) was formed; it is believed to be the first such group in India.
