India, its landscape, architectural splendors, people and customs have long been subjects of fascination for photographers. The exquisite images of the photographer Barbara Macklowe thrust us into a world few have seen or think of as India. Yet we can see and feel a familiarity with the people and places in her photographs. We experience both the differences and the sameness among us all. The images in this book are a reflection of one photographer's experience of this diverse land and her attempts to peer beneath the surface to reveal its human dimension. She has an uncanny ability to connect with her subjects. The result is a very personal visual journey which reveals the warmth, beauty and humanity of the Indian people. She reveals a land of beauty, hardship and joy that breathes with life and surges with energy.
