India, a vast sub-continent, created an original civilization which saw the birth and growth of the biggest religions. Hinduism, Buddhism, but equally so Jainism and Sikhism. This thousand year old land, where faiths coexist, cultures blend together, and yet is thirsty for modernity, will always remain the symbol of spirituality. From birth until death, life is thus rhythmed by the meetings with the sacred.This permanent presence of the divine in the cycle of existence constitutes the plot of this work in which, through witnesses and meetings,one can follow the youth and its rites of initiation, the celebrations and the festival of the adult age, and finally the rites of passage towards death. The quality of the photographs taken by Frederic Soltan marvelously describes the poetic universe of this fascinating country.
