A fresh edition of Bitesnich’s eighth book for teNeues

A milestone in the long tradition of travel photography that brings the Indian reality home

With beautiful sepia and black-and-white shots reminiscent of bygone photo albums

 

A new edition of Andreas H. Bitesnich’s classic portrait of India, a timeless photographic masterpiece capturing the breathtaking beauty and complexity of the world’s largest democracy.

India is constantly on the move. It moves sideways, backwards, upwards, and forwards. It is a nation of both past and future, where time seems to pass by its own laws, and extraordinary tradition coexists with hyper modernity and ever-booming construction. For many, India is as much a state of mind as a country. 

Through this photographic journey of discovery, Andreas H. Bitesnich creates a fascinating book about India, revealing many facets of this intricate, populous country. In color, black-and-white, and sepia, his stunning photographs show Indian culture, food, faith, heritage, landmarks, cities, and wildlife, as well as its daily interactions and centuries-old monuments. 

The images do not shy away from the complexity and raw hardship of Indian life. With honesty and respect, Bitesnich documents the country’s ongoing struggles as much as its vibrancy and growth. We see India’s temples and mosques, its wild Indian elephants, its extraordinary architecture, and its deep spirituality. And we see its urban sprawl, its squalor, its street poverty, and suffering. 

The result is a photo book immersed in the Indian present and complexity, while steeped in the texture and gravitas of a bygone travel album.
