Varanasi PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Varanasi free pdf depicting its unique way of life, and showing us worlds within worlds. In photograph after photograph, the secular and the profane coexist- the old can hardly be told from the new. Everything is experienced at once - the ghats, the streets, the faith, the temples, the river, the celebrations, man and beast, the burning bodies, all jostling for space in the same frame. These photographs demonstrate unforgettably how all of India is in Varanasi, inspiring and appalling, ancient and up-to-date. A collector's edition.

About Raghu Rai

Raghu Rai's interest in music began as a child, when he wanted to be a musician. That was not to be, but his interest in classical music deepened in the mid-1960s, when he became a photojournalist. However, it was only in the mid-1980s, as photo editor of India Today magazine, that he started a systematic exploration of classical music-an obsession that continues to this day. A trailblazer, Rai has covered many social, political and cultural themes, and his photo essays have appeared in the world's leading magazines and newspapers, including Time, Life, National Geographic and the New York Times .Along the way, Rai has authored over twenty books, including The Sikhs, Calcutta, Taj Mahal, I/ndia and Mother Teresa-Faith and Compassion, and his work has been exhibited in many major cities of the world. Winner of the Padma Shri and the Officier des Arts et des Lettres, Rai is an associate of Magnum Photos. He lives in New Delhi with his family.
