John Isaac recently sent this email postcard from India: “Temperatures are soaring, almost 46 degrees Celsius. I am in India working on my new project on the tigers. Yesterday we spotted this beautiful female in the pool cooling off. We spent the whole morning tracking her. Almost felt like jumping in and cool of myself. Believe me it was hot. Good thing I did not. If I had you would not be receiving this post card..”
A U.N. photographer for three decades, John is renowned for his images from across the globe, but he is always drawn back to India. His 2008 book The Vale of Kashmir is a spectacular tribute to the land and people of this remote region. John set out to create a work that would honor both the cultural complexity and the breathtaking beauty of this exotic region. In lush color, he captures the varied details of daily life. Here is historical Kashmir, not the country torn apart by war. This is an enchanted and enchanting land seen in 160 magnificent images from a master photographer.
John returns to Rockport July 19 – 25 this summer to lead his popular People, Places, & Things workshop, sponsored by Olympus. His work is also featured in two Workshops special events “Views of India” August 10, and “Celebrating India” August 11.
