Dayanita Singh is one of the most accomplished and astute photographers of her generation. Her work has won international acclaim, and has influenced a whole new generation of photographers.

"Her acute gaze frames not just the moment but, as Sunil Khilnani observes in his essay on her work on Benares, captures what happens beyond the pools of light. This retrospective collection brings together her entire oeuvre from Myself Mona Ahmed published in 2001, to her most recent explorations of colour and night, Dream Villa and The Blue Book. With over 100 photographs, this volume, which includes perceptive commentaries by Aveek Sen, is a collector's delight.

Dayanita's works have been exhibited extensively, including galleries and museums in Berlin, London, Milan, New York, Sydney, Zurich and many others. She is also the recipient of many awards including the prestigious Prince Claus Award 2008 by the government of The Netherlands.
