Departures: A Journey with India (Hardcover)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Nowhere is the human condition more apparent than in India, a window to life, a window to all.
Departures presents a journey through place, life, and our preparations for departure from the material to the ethereal. To journey with India is to reflect, a portal to the experiences of a universal human condition, Departures weaves together a sometimes-haunting story of modernity and urbanization with an ancient, diverse, and complex land. A work in the humanist and social realist genre of photography, Departures reflects on the 21st century urban stage contrasting the gritty realism of urban life, work and the struggles and joys of the everyday with the dramatic beauty of people, ritual, belief, and landscape. Created from an archive of 20 years photographing, living and working in India, Departures goes beyond the often incidental or serendipitous nature of street photography to open the door and explore the life within.
