The Indian subcontinent, home to one-sixth of the global population, is a vastly diverse, naturally vibrant, and culturally rich region of the world. Award-winning author-photographer Clive Limpkin travelled extensively thoughout India to capture this vast and populous nation, and the photographic legacy of his journeys is impressively far-reaching, both in geographic scope and subject. His thematic approach to photography is complemented by thoughtful essays on alphabetically arranged subjects. From "Army" and "Astrology" to "Yoga" and "Zebu", India Exposed: The Subcontinent A-Z
brilliantly illuminates the culture, natural life, and regional variety of India.
Limpkin's photographs and essays invite his reader to learn about the issues and trends facing India today. Limpkin's photo of a woman bent over, sweeping her front yard while her husband looks on, addresses the issue of gender roles, while the haunting faces of India's untouchables remind readers of the legacy of the caste system. As diverse as the country it portrays India Exposed
is a comprehensive photograph tribute to the second-largest nation in the world. India Exposed
is more than just a photography book. Through poignant essays full of exciting personal anecdotes, the author takes readers along on his numerous Indian adventures. This photograph voyage exposes India, home to overcrowded cities and luscious wildlife reserves, in the 21st century.
