India Now:New Visions in Photography: New Visions in Photography by Pavan K. Varma
India recently celebrated sixty years of independence. The country, almost a continent in its own right, has become a great economic power, yet its image is still all too often limited to colourful cliches of brightly coloured saris and postcards of the Taj Mahal. This book sweeps away such idealized visions by presenting the work of twenty-nine Indian and Western photographers, both internationally renowned artists and rising talents, who focus their gaze on India today. Intimate images, urban settings, a burgeoning middle class: an unknown India is revealed in this landmark photographic anthology of the country today.
