Product Description

Benares Seen From Within

Author: Richard Lannoy

Richard Lannoy’s work on Benares from 1953 to the present. A superb collection of color and predominately black & white images of India’s holiest city. “It is at once beautiful, calm, agitated and terrifying. These are, in their way, the best photographs I have seen” Stephen Spender. 640 pages.

‘A rare combination of creative photography and cultural history put together by one man, this book both visually and textually is the most massive presentation of this extraordinary city ever attempted. It is the fruit of a lifelong interest in Benares from 1953 until the present day.’

Highly recommended.

Hardcover with jacket. Contents fine, cover with some slight surface abrasions in centre, but nothing obtrusive,  jacket now in clear mylar cover. 12 by 9 inches.
