Raghubir Singh. Modernism on the Ganges.
Text by Mia Fineman. Contribution by Amit Chaudhuri and Partha Mitter and Shanay Jhaveri.
Metropolitan Museum of Art, United States, 2017. In English. 224 pp., 150 color illustrations, 9x11x½".

Publisher's Description
Raghubir Singh (1942–1999) was a pioneer of color street photography who worked and published prolifically from the late 1960s until his death in 1999 at age 56.  His vivid, intensely hued photographs capture rural and urban India and iconic depictions of Indian culture though a truly cosmopolitan approach that succeeded in blending East and West.  This richly illustrated volume studies in depth the full breadth of Singh’s work, situating it at the intersection of Western modernism and traditional South Asian modes of picturing the world.  The book showcases 90 of his photographs, including some previously unpublished images, in counterpoint both with the work of his contemporaries and with images of traditional South Asian artworks that inspired his practice.
