Bailey's Dehli Dilemma

by

Bailey's Dehli Dilemma Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How does one photograph Delhi without the results looking like clichéd, tourist-friendly images taken from the pages of National Geographic? How does a photographer of David Bailey's standing portray India without seeming condescending? These questions are at the heart of Bailey's Delhi Dilemma.

Bailey has been to India fifteen times, and in this new series of photographs he avoids focussing on the cultural and economic differences between East and West that can make photos of the country appear overly didactic. Instead, Bailey depicts the colours, characters and textures that make Delhi unique - a magenta sari, an infant walking alone on a rust-coloured road, a bright blue plastic tarpaulin - and so creates a portrait of the city that is sensitive without being self-indulgent.

This book is the first of many that will present Bailey's ongoing response to his Delhi Dilemma.
