Historic, colourful, bold, brash and entirely individual - this is India: feudal and autocratic; democratic and socialist; worldly and entrepreneurial, and disconcertingly ethereal. From the tapering away of the Mughal era, to the Revolt of 1857, the growth of the freedom movement, a fledgling nation's first steps, to the dynamism that distinguishes India today, India: 150 Years in Photographs has it all. Researched from amongst the 70 million images recounting 150 years of photography held by Getty Images, this visual narrative has the key events and players, the most humble day-to-day personages and the vast glorious panorama that is the Indian subcontinent.
As new, book in plastic wrap. Box that the book is in does have a little damage.
