Journey Through the Heart of a Continent

Sabrina and Roland Michaud traveled throughout India from 1965 to 2001, often on lengthy expeditions, dedicating more than thirty years to photographing the landscape and people. India: Journey through the Heart of a Continent is their intimate view of this remarkable country. India is currently one of the top five travel destinations in the world, and it inspires extreme and passionate responses from its many visitors. From the Himalayas to the Dravidian lands, India contains the variety of an entire continent. The Michauds portray it as a magical place where the best and the worst, the sacred and the profane, and reality and fiction melt together. The beauty and mysteries of India's many competing religions and ways of life provided the inspiration for the 155 carefully selected photographs in this volume, telling the story of a remarkable country caught between old traditions and modern dilemmas. The variety of the photographs is astounding, reflecting the depth of understanding of the photojournalists; the breathtaking images range from India's austere, mountainous landscapes and diverse architectural tradition to intimate portraits of the men, women, and children who inhabit these places. From beachside bonfires and traditional fishing boats to details of intricate stone carvings and sweeping panoramas of the cities' crowded streets, India: Journey through the Heart of a Continent provides an unparalleled look into the lives of the Indian people and the multifaceted worlds in which they live. Imparting encyclopedic information and first-hand knowledge, this book also includes extracts of fundamental texts and passages by famous writers such as Henri Michaux, enlarging the scope of this volume. India: Journey through the Heart of a Continent contains supplementary information including notes on the photographs, a map, a glossary, a chronology, and a bibliography, all designed to contextualize the photographs. Through text and image Roland and Sabina Michaud have sought to capture the nuances of Indian life in this gorgeous, expansive tribute to the real India. This volume is an ideal gift for armchair travelers as well as for those who have traveled there and wish to relive the beauty and surprise of their journey.
