Title:Monsoon - Brian Brake
David Bateman, 2007. Front end-paper removed, but structure of book intact. A unique photographic look at the life of India as it is moulded by the annual coming of the rains from one of the major photojournalists of the 20th century. Photographed in 1960, the images from Monsoon became part of the lexicon of photojournalism when they appeared in Life, Queen, Epoca and Paris-Match in the early 1960s; the young girl welcoming the first sweet rain remains an iconic image of the time. This is the first time that the full Monsoon series has been reproduced, along with essays that set out in human terms the effects of the rains on important aspects of life and the cultural heritage of India.
