Rajasthan is not only the erstwhile royal land of the Maharajas, of imposing forts and grand palaces, which continue to enthrall visitors from across the world. It is also a land rich in street color and popular pageantry. Impressions of Rajasthan takes photography lovers on an uncharted voyage across one of the most inspirational states on the Indian subcontinent, offering a unique look at the painted imagination of India with mural works ranging from mandalic geometrical abstraction to figurative scenes. The camera also masterfully captures the everyday lifestyle of those living in contemporary Rajasthan, whether they are at the heart of their local community or out in the midst of the Thar desert. In particular, we see Rajasthani women chatting in small groups, buying fruit at the market, and painting their homes with murals in which religion, history, and politics are described by brushstrokes often as humorous as they are pious.
