This is India.
Nomads in Rajasthan, ganja smoking sadhus in Gujarat. Red painted faces in Jaipur's Holi festival. Crowded streets of Kolkata and its smoky garbage dump.
Women with pots on their heads and rings in noses. Tattoos and scars. Strong colours and shadows. Policemen and beggars, festivals and suffering.
And lots of funny animals too.
From the preface :
This book is a selection of nearly 120 photographs from India. In most cases , they were chosen to be viewed together, as presented on neighbouring pages.
Always close, emotional and personal. This is visual essay, closer to a tale from 1001 nights than raw geographical documentary presenting temple after temple and event after event. It is supposed to be visual feast and stimulation of senses rather than boring lesson. Enjoy.
