Alex Ekins // Sadhu II
A Sadhu is a Hindu ascetic, a wandering holy man. Sadhu renounce all earthly possessions and live in caves, forests and temples. The Sadhu have chosen to give up work, materialism and the trappings of modern society. They live their lives apart from or on the edges of society.
In 2012 and 2016 Sheffield photographer and street artist travelled to Nepal to document their lives. Using a portable studio Alex photographed the Sadhu in the streets and temples of Nepal. Back in the UK the Sadhu are pasted life-size in Sheffields streets.
