I have always been fascinated by the sheer beauty and diversity in Indian culture. “Sensory overload in a glance” is an apt description of a country that is always in movement. To be able to stand still in the middle of all that movement allows me to really “see” her people and absorb the flow of life from birth to death.
From learning how to make yellow ink from cow urine to watching funeral pyres burn in Varanasi, I realized that I would have to spend a lifetime here to grasp the immense value of her art, stunning architecture, fascinating food and love of all that is beautiful.

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. I had read To Be a Child by Debra Schoenberger so I was looking forward to reading this book also.
India is full of amazing photos taken in India. There is a map at the end of the book that shows where the photos were taken which I found interesting. She didn’t go to just once city but to many. The photos capture the diversity of Indian culture, from beautiful architecture to cows lazing in the streets. Debra has captured it all.
This would make a good coffee table book. It’s a book to pick up over and over to look at the photos again and again. It is a book for all ages since it is full of photos rather than text.
About the Author
“My dad always carried a camera under the seat of his car and was constantly taking pictures. I think that his example, together with pouring over National Geographic magazines as a child fuelled my curiosity for the world around me.
I am a documentary photographer and street photography is my passion. Some of my images have been chosen by National Geographic as editor’s favourites and are on display in the National Geographic museum in Washington, DC. I also have an off-kilter sense of humour so I’m always looking for the unusual.
