Description

"India: Journey through the Heart of a Continent" is a groundbreaking photographic journey, illustrated with 150 captivating images, through the heart of India, illuminating the variety of cultural traditions that constitute modern Indian life. From 1965 to 2001, Roland and Sabina Michaud traveled throughout India on a series of lengthy expeditions, dedicating over thirty five years to photographing the landscape and people. "India: Journey through the Heart of a Continent" is their intimate view of this remarkable country, designed to illuminate the country's complexities and contradictions. The beauty and mysteries of India's many competing religions and ways of life provided the inspiration for the 150 carefully selected photographs in this volume, telling the story of a remarkable country caught between old traditions and modern dilemmas. India is currently one of the top five destinations in the world and it inspires extreme and passionate responses from its many visitors; while some see it as an enchanted island, the poverty and difficulties of daily life are impossible to ignore. From the Himalayas to the Dravidian lands, India contains the variety of an entire continent. Through their fascinating text and images, Roland and Sabina Michaud have sought to capture the reality of Indian life in this gorgeous, expansive tribute to the real India. This is an ideal gift for armchair travelers as well as for those who have traveled there and wish to relive the beauty and surprise of their journey.
