Greg Davis, National Geographic Creative Photographer and Founding Member of the Austin Center for Photography, attended the world’s largest spiritual pilgrimage, India’s Kumbh Mela.   For millennia, every twelfth year, millions of devoted pilgrims have gathered at the confluence of the three holiest rivers.  It was from this journey, that this twenty-four piece photographic exhibition and short film were born.
