5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful images of India
This is a fabulous coffee table book filled with some of the most beautiful images of India you are ever likely to see. The colour is vibrant and the close up photographs of people and objects are stunning in their detail. The sense of India is further captured by the passages from a variety of writers whose words sometimes fit beautifully with a particular photograph and...

3.0 out of 5 stars A good book on India
I bought this book because very interested in everything related to India, and in particular history, traditions and religions. Reviews were all very good, so maybe I had too great expectations...

3.0 out of 5 stars A good book on India, 13 Mar. 2009
This review is from: India: In Word and Image (Hardcover)
I bought this book because very interested in everything related to India, and in particular history, traditions and religions. Reviews were all very good, so maybe I had too great expectations... In my opinion this book represents a good documentary introduction to India, but lacks something if you're looking for an innovative or original interpretation of this beautiful country.
Pictures are quite good, but too often they look like "seen before" images.
India is so spectacular in its variety, its different moods and colors, that sometimes western travellers risk to miss its deep roots, its hidden soul.
By a technical and artistic point of view, I hope I'm not alone to consider debatable the actual trend to print photographs with unreal, super bright colors. Far from adding any charme, "boosted" colors cannot help a weak image, but they could render false and dull a good one.
For those interested in a more intimistic and reflective approach to India I'd suggest "India" by Don McCullin, "Children of Bombay" by Dario Mitidieri or the beatiful works by Raghu Ray

This is a fabulous coffee table book filled with some of the most beautiful images of India you are ever likely to see. The colour is vibrant and the close up photographs of people and objects are stunning in their detail. The sense of India is further captured by the passages from a variety of writers whose words sometimes fit beautifully with a particular photograph and at others just paint an image of their own. If you have never been to India before it will make you want to jump on the next plane. If you have you will want to go back again very soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect present, 7 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: India: In Word and Image (Hardcover)
I bought this beautiful book for my friend who adores India and who has visited many times, I was therefore very nervous of giving such a book in case it didn't capture the India she knew but she absolutely adores it. The images are breath taking and the story to how and when the pictures were taking adds context which is so interesting. So pleased with the purchase and is a great coffee table addition...

This review is from: India: In Word and Image (Hardcover)
A beautiful book. High quality construction, paper & cover. The photos, subjects, quantity and the quality are superb; letting your imagination as a previous visitor to India reflect on similar that you have encountered. Short written sections. Excellent!
