Red cloth with dustwrapper. Small nicks to head and tail of spine of wrapper otherwise fine. 1997 marked the fiftieth anniversary of India's independence from Great Britain. In commemoration of this event, Aperture presents India: A Celebration of Independence, 1947-1997, which accompanied a major touring exhibition of the same title. Together, the exhibition and this book constitute an unprecedented gathering of the most significant photographs to be made in India over the past five decades - the culmination of a quest to capture the country's essence visually, and to depict the uniquely deep and complex love that binds both native-born and foreign artist to India for a lifetime. The book explores what author Victor Anant, in his stirring essay, refers to as an India that "lives outside time, in a kind of space that has never been usurped by alien forces": a nation that has always had a fiercely independent spirit, an identity that is both steeped in tradition and constantly evolving. India: A Celebration of Independence features exquisite black-and-white duotone as well as four-colour reproductions of the work of twenty-three photographers. Size: Quarto. 226 pages. Category: Travel & Places; History; Asia; General; art & Design. ISBN: 0893816957. ISBN/EAN: 9780893816957. Dewey Code: 954.040222.
