About The Book
In this spectacular volume, photographer Olivier Follmi captures stunning images of a land where ancient traditions still guide the paths of daily life today, where gods and their actions bond the people with the universe in so many ways. Follmi looks beyond the noise, chaos and sensory overload of the Indian streets to examine deeper truths surrounding the people and their culture. His compelling photographs convey beauty and stillness, reflection and contentment and express a philosophy and an approach to life that is radically different from that of the West. 200 photographs and illustrations in full colour.
