A collection of images by Raghubir Singh, focusing on the city of Calcutta, India. Singh (1942-1999) was a self-taught Indian photographer, best known for his documentary-style, small-format street photography of the people of India. He was influenced by Henri Cartier-Bresson, whom he met in 1966, and Robert Frank, but unlike them, he chose to work in color--color being intrinsic to Indian aesthetics. Photographs by Raghubir Singh; essay by R.P. Gupta. Unpaginated [120 pages]; 96 full-page color plates; 12.25 x 10.5 inches. Captions list.
