Overview

A world-renowned photographer's spectacular tribute to the land and people of this remote region.The Vale of Kashmir celebrates the people and landscape of Kashmir and the unique way of life that has developed there. John Isaac set out to create a work that would honor both the cultural complexity and the breathtaking beauty of this exotic region. In lush color, he captures the varied details of daily life: canals crowded with houseboats and floating gardens on Dal Lake, the ancient city of Srinagar, the harvesting of saffron, Hindu pilgrimages through the mountains, shepherds on the Himalayan slopes, prayers at the mosque, and the private realm of family life. Isaac writes: "There is something very magical about this place." Here is historical Kashmir, not the country torn apart by war. This is an enchanted and enchanting land seen in 160 magnificent color images from a master photographer.

These days when you hear about Kashmir you only hear the negative. John Isaac shows you the real Kashmir - the beauty of the region, the amazing scenery and the peaceful people. This book offers you a glimpse of life in a place few of us get to experience. Beware these photos may have you scheduling a trip to India.
