Overview

This is a magnificent portrait of post-Raj India before the modern world swept across the subcontinent. Featuring 100 superbly reproduced, full-page photographs, this is Derry Moore's splendid photographic evocation of an independent India that had all but vanished by the late 1970s—above all, an India still untouched by mass tourism.

In them, he found eccentricity, originality, and an extraordinary hybrid of Indian and British taste.
