A Way Into India


Or, in the case of my brother Greg right now, a way around India, as he gets set to drive in a hired car from Jaisalmer to Delhi (taking in Pushkar, then Samode, then a wildlife reserve along the way), to catch his plane home. Chances are he'll be riding in an Ambassador car like the one shown here, on the cover of the great documentary photographer Raghubir Singh's final great book project, "A Way Into India."

Booklist: The Art of Looking Sideways


Fascinating book by Alan Fletcher, that I've had on my book wish list for a while.
