INDIA is quickly turning into one of many pre-eminent leaders of the twenty-first century. For greater than a decade, Eric Meola has again many times to India, photographing the folks, temples, landscapes, structure, celebrations, and artwork of this uniquely exuberant and really different state.

Over two hundred pictures (edited from greater than 25,000 pictures) will fill this fantastically published, large-format publication. the images should be observed through dozens of essays, tales, and poems via modern and classical Indian writers.
