After 26 years in which time he has been hailed as one of the most respected photographers of India, Raghu Rai has ventured into political territory once more. In this stunning new volume he photographs two important Indian leaders, an outgoing PM, Manmohan Singh, and an incoming one, Narendra Modi. Both are photographed amidst the cacophony of their party meetings, but there is a silence at the centre. One is tinged by despair, the other by a sense of overwhelming power.
Raghu Rai is a noted photographer who has published 36 books including celebrated ones on Indira Gandhi, Mother Teresa and the Dalai Lama.
