The Colours of Southern India by Barbara Lloyd

Far away from the Taj Mahal, the Red Fort, and other tourist destinations of the north lies another India: the lush and beautiful Southern States. In Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Goa, dazzling colors are a natural result of a hot climate and fertile landscape, but they are also deeply symbolic in so spiritual a country, where blue is for both Vishnu and brilliantly colored saris, red for Lakshmi and blazing hot chilis, yellow for good luck and golden turmeric, and green for Hanuman and vibrant rice fields. Swaying palms and garlands of flowers, painted bullock carts and caparisoned elephants--these are but a few examples of the visual treat recorded in Barbara Lloyd's ravishing photographs, in which even the white of jasmine petals, the black of cooking pots, and the earth tones of temple sculpture glow with an inner radiance. For anyone fortunate enough to have visited this region, The Colours of Southern India will evoke powerful memories of a magical land. For the armchair traveler, the photographs provide a near-perfect substitute for the real experience.
