River of Colour is the first ever retrospective of his work.David Travis is Curator of Photography at the Art Institute of Chicago.

This is the first retrospective collection of the work of Indian photographer Singh (The Grand Trunk Road: A Passage Through India, Aperture, 1995), whose work is in the permanent collections of several major U.S. museums. Singh has been compared to Henri Cartier-Bresson in his ability to capture the day-to-day life of ordinary people. In the book's preface, David Travis, curator of photography at the Art Institute of Chicago, remarks that in Singh's photographs, "the wise and mad cultural heritage of India is out in the streets for everyone to see." Unlike Cartier-Bresson, however, Singh uses color with aplomb. In his introductory essay, "River of Color: An Indian View," Singh voices his theories about color, photography, and art in general. This large-format volume features 128 full-page and two-page color photographs, divided by theme. They are followed by four pages of notes. Highly recommended for photography and art collections.?Ravi Shenoy, Hinsdale P.L., IL
