Book Signing with Eric Meola
Eric Meola will be available to sign personalized copies of his book “India: In Word and Image.”
This revised and expanded version of Eric Meola’s 2008 India takes the reader on a journey through Mumbai, Rajasthan, Agra, Dungarpur, along desert roads, to the Ganges water’s edge, including spectacular ruins, the Taj Mahal, and the Festival of Elephants, capturing the spectacle and vibrant colours of these ancient regions.
INDIA is rapidly becoming one of the pre-eminent leaders of the twenty-first century. Eric Meola has repeatedly returned to India for more than a decade, photographing the people, temples, 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 colour and pageantry of Rajasthan in the West to the tea plantations of Darjeeling in the East. Over 200 photographs (edited from more than 25,000 images) will fill this beautifully printed, large-format book. The pictures will accompany dozens of essays, stories, and poems by contemporary and classical Indian writers.
