The world's most densely populated country, and the tiger's last remaining natural habitat, India is a land of contradictions.

In this visually stunning book, photographer Olivier Föllmi
captures this land where tradition and modernity coexist-
the India of the cell phone and the sacred cow. Föllmi
looks beyond the commotion and sensory overload of the
Indian street to examine deeper truths about the people and
their culture. His photographs convey serenity and
stillness, expressing a philosophy and an approach to life
radically different from the West's.
This award-winning photographer's work includes portraits
of people of all classes-farmers and potters, dancers and
musicians, parents and children-and probes as well human
interactions with animals including cows, monkeys, and
elephants. Never does he portray his subjects as exotic
objects; rather, his realistic, moving images pay tribute
to his subjects' essential dignity and profound humanity.
