Raghubir Singh was one of the twentieth century's finest documentary photographers. In these pictures there is more than the conventionally beautiful: in them we are brought face to face with Loknadi, the river of the world. This is Raghubir Singh's personal pilgrimage along the Ganges: from the Himalayas, where the river rises among snows, through the villages of the plain, past Banaras and through Bihar to the Bay of Bengal. He captures its stunning beauty, its turbulence and ferocity during the monsoon and the daily lives of the people who live along it. He shows the river's powerful religious significance, attested by the millions of Hindus who take part in the ageless pilgrimages and festivals held on the Ganges' banks. Raghubir Singh's own inspiring and profound introductions to each section demonstrate that what he notices with his mind he can capture to an amazing degree with his camera. Printed Pages: 192 with 123 colour illustrations.
