In Picturing Time, Raghu Rai, India’s greatest living photographer, puts together the finest pictures he has taken over the course of a career that spans fifty years. His photographs of war, faith, monuments like the Taj Mahal, ordinary Indians, our greatest leaders, saints and charlatans, deserts and much else besides in black and white, and in colour, are imprinted on our memory. However, they have never been collected before in a single book. To add to our appreciation of these extraordinary pictures, most of them are accompanied by the photographer’s insights into how, when and why the photographs were taken.
To mark this landmark in his legendary career, he has put together, for the first time, the definitive selection of his finest pictures, across a variety of themes, along with the stories behind the photographs. Timeless, often unsettling, and always unforgettable, these pictures will change the way we see our world.
