My Land & its People by Raghu Rai



<a href=””><img src=””></a&gt;

This is a magnificently illustrated and evocative collection of photographs from one of the world’s finest photojournalists. Raghu Rai is regarded by peers and critics alike as one of the world’s finest photographers and photojournalists.

Raghu Rai is one of those few photographers who never left India, and  in his four decades of work, has captured almost all milestones of the young democracy.

Apart from being a photographer who has captured so many moments and people, Raghu Rai is also an avid book producer. He has such a wealth of pictures, that he puts together those that create the story he wants to tell. And once his book is complete, he shows it to publishers who he thinks might be interested, and gets the book published.

“My Land and Its People” is a stunningly illustrated volume that brings together a collection of Rai’s work that captures India.
