Photographer Of The Dead - Death Photographers in Varanasi - 101 India


No selfies or group shots for Indra Kumar Jha. His subjects don't smile.

Indra Kumar Jha started taking pictures of the dead at the age of 9. For almost 2 decades, he has plied the streets of Varanasi, clicking photos that become the last memory of the dead. These can be used by local authorities as evidence if ever the need arises. Indra is sure that while this is how he makes his living, he doesn't want his children to follow in his footsteps.
