India is one of the most beguiling and photogenic countries in the world. Faces of India takes the reader on a personal photographic journey through the country, and presents a penetrating view of the myriad faces and expressions of this vast subcontinent. Each page is an explosion of color and pageantry, with glimpses of life in all its profusion and diversity.
Here are the proud descendants of the warrior races of India, the bearded village sadhus, the smiling children, and the bright yellows, greens, and brilliant oranges of the women's saris, shimmering against the brown landscape.
The PHOTOGRAPHER, Peter Spira, has spent many years journeying through India, and has built up an enviable collection of images that capture, in his words, "the natural dignity and pride" of the Indian people.
