The Indian photographer Raghubir Singh, internationally regarded by critics as one of the finest colour photographers working today, has chronicled the vibrant diversity of life in his homeland with unparalleled mastery and depth of vision. In his tenth book, Singh turns his lens to Bombay, the city that has been called the Gateway of India.In a conversation with the photographer that opens Bombay, the distinguished writer V. S. Naipaul discusses the methods and motivation behind Singh's work - from the photographer's eye for the telling detail, to his insider's perspective on the great Indian metropolis. Naipaul comments, "One can't just look at this work about Bombay and say: 'Good, I have looked at these pictures.' They need attention. The pictures have to be read."
