For more than a decade, Eric Meola has returned repeatedly to India, photographing the people, landscapes, architecture, celebrations, and art of this uniquely exuberant and incredibly diverse country. Meola's journeys took him from the Himalayas and monasteries in the North to the temples of Tamil Nadu in the South, from the color and pageantry of Rajasthan in the West to the tea plantations of Darjeeling in the East. Each of Meola's images is a work of art that speaks of India's myriad colors and wonders. This visual celebration is accompanied by words from major writers whose works derive inspiration from Indian themes. More than thirty literary passages capture and immerse readers in the compelling story that is India.
