Ganges to the Ganges, via Ganges with Naomi Hart

Ganges to the Ganges, via Ganges with Naomi Hart

A word that sparked a journey of thousands of miles over 3 years, Naomi Hart was drawn to the poetry of the name, Ganges, and the link with her mother, who grew up in Ganges, British Columbia. While living in Ganges, France, Naomi decided to embark on a sketchbook journey of discovery of all the places called Ganges in the world.

From documenting a 24 hour ferry journey through Bangladesh, meeting the people who live on the shifting mudflats and see their homes and crops washed away with the power of the annual snowmelt and experiencing one of the worst cyclones of recent years, to learning to enjoy the slow pace of Indian railways and finding family history in Kolkata, Naomi’s sketchbooks are a vivid record of her travels.

In this slideshow she will share her sketchbook images of the Bangladesh and Indian part of her journey, from the great floodplain of the Ganges Delta, up through Kolkata, Murshidabad, Varanasi and into the foothills of the Himalayas. Images of the people and places will be brought to life with tales of the journey and some of her writing.

£5 - bring a picnic and please book ahead as space will be limited.
