Description

The Republic of India, the India that this book talks about, is a composite state. India is in reality many Indias, diverse and yet clearly Indian in the most intimate sense, the country’s territory, with its wide variety of scenery and often unique environments, beyond being one of the causes for its diversity and fragmentation, it is also the most immediate representation, an indissoluble tie between physical and human geography.

A book of photographs, with its portraits, its scenery and its indiscrete eyes can provide a way to get closer, to tempt us into jumping heedlessly and into another world, observing the times, the colours, the roads, and nature as if looking at a map through a powerful magnifying glass.

The Republic of India, the India that this book talks about, is a composite state. A reality that is extremely complicated made up of many different layers that make it very difficult if not impossible to simplify or try to describe in few words.

Contemporary India is a country of great contrasts; vast riches side by side with the most absolute misery, primitive agricultural practices with the latest technology, giant cosmopolitan cities next to tiny villages that are continually threatened by natural disasters and famine.

Within the diversity and the contrasts, exits something extremely Indian that goes beyond the differences, creating a strong tie that crosses all the boundaries and unites the various communities and ethnic groups that are present.
