This new and exciting volume on India takes readers on an exhilarating photo safari through the regions and cities of the enigmatic Indian subcontinent. Breathtaking photographs – shot on location and never posed – provide a window into teeming cities such as Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore, as well as the picturesque lifestyles of the countryside.
Especially useful in understanding India and its way of life is the book’s historical introduction, which addresses the country’s cultural history, social structures and main religions. Numerous photo essays and special topics aim a documentary lens at key issues for Indian society, including the caste system, rituals and celebrations.
