Description
The book explores the fringes of metropolitan India; places of construction, deterioration and places where landscape and urban development intersect. The photographs were taken during two months of fieldwork in late 2010, covering nine different cities across the country. Both the photographs and the essay examine the haphazard and often contradictory urban growth, and together they offer a glimpse of India’s present and future cities, and as such, the very frame within which the lives of more than 400 million people currently take place.
Il libro esplora i margini dell’India metropolitana; luoghi di costruzione, di degrado e spazi in cui si intersecano paesaggio e sviluppo urbano. Le fotografie sono state scattate durante due mesi di indagine sul campo alla fine del 2010 in nove diverse città in tutto il paese. Le fotografie e il saggio contenuti in questo libro s’interrogano sulla crescita urbana spesso casuale e contraddittoria e ci consentono di vedere uno scorcio delle città presenti e future dell’India, dove attualmente vivono oltre 400 milioni di persone.
