Smoking baba on the ghats

Smoking Baba on the Ghats

Piece description from the artist

On Valentines day in 2014 I was in Varanasi with an Australian lover I met a few weeks earlier in the south of India. We wandered the ghats, the stepped places along the river Ganges, and had curious and comical interactions with the locals and tourists. My favorite was this man, a baba our celebrating his happiness or whatever it was he was doing, we didn't share a language so I really can't say. But we shared a lot of laughs, chai, and a cigarette.

About Timothy Wildgoose

Portland, OR

There is beauty in the mundane. That is the sole thread that weaves Timothy's work together. It aims not to capture moments to cling to the past but to inspire you into the present moment, to fall in love with its glorious details. To fall into a vast reverence for the depths of this moments beauty, exactly as it is. No moment is ordinary, each a masterpiece. Life is a perfection marred by just enough tarnish to keep us in a wild goose chase.
