Item description for Faces of India by Peter Spira...

India is one of the most beguiling and photogenic countries in the world. Faces of India takes the reader on a personal photographic journey through the country, and presents a penetrating view of the myriad faces and expressions of this vast subcontinent. Each page is an explosion of color and pageantry, with glimpses of life in all its profusion and diversity. Here are the proud descendants of the warrior races of India, the bearded village sadhus, the smiling children, and the bright yellows, greens, and brilliant oranges of the women's saris, shimmering against the brown landscape. The PHOTOGRAPHER, Peter Spira, has spent many years journeying through India, and has built up an enviable collection of images that capture, in his words, "the natural dignity and pride" of the Indian people.

"Peter Spira's photographs of India have been exhibited twice at The Nehru Centre. It is therefore a special pleasure to see his stunning work in print in Faces of India." -- Pavan K Varma, Director, The Nehru Center, London

"Peter Spira's photographs reflect his feelings for the colors and vitality of India and include some portraits that have real love in them." -- Derry Moore, PHOTOGRAPHER

Reviews - What do customers think about Faces of India?

good, but not great photography  Oct 24, 2006
The photos in this book are less than outstanding, and perhaps the publisher is partly to blame for the less-than-vivid colors. The book seems to have an emphasis on Rajasthan, rather than the whole of India. After having spent 20 days in India this past June, traveling from Chennai to New Delhi, via Bangalore, Hyderabad, Mysore and Agra, this book disappoints. Much better buys are any of the books by Raghubir Singh (esp. "River of Colour").
