Shooting Hatebook at the Pashupatinath Temple premises was not a coincidence at all. I thought it would be quite ironical (blasphemous might be the word) to shoot a death metal band’s portrait against the backdrop and ambience of Hindu’s most revered god’s abode. I was quite excited about it, I’m sure, so was the band.
Throughout the day, I was planning to do this shoot under evening light but somehow we got there when it was already dark, and thus had to adjust to whatever we had in front of us. Lesson of the day: improvise !
And, with apologies and respect for the deceased one and his/her relatives. The fire (cremation) and the light falling on Bagmati river was just too precious to miss.
