India by Emmanuel Lenain ( Autographed )
“In India to France”: a labour of photographic love
26th April evening celebrated the release of a book juxtaposing the deep appreciation of two photographers for each other’s countries, “In India to France”, at Alliance Française de Delhi.
This book came into being through the joint collaboration of Ambassador of France to India and passionate photographer, Emmanuel Lenain, and renowned Indian photographer Raghu Rai, feted in France for being the first Indian photographer to be invited to join the legendary Magnum Photos agency founded by Henri Cartier-Bresson.
The book follows Mr Rai's photographic explorations of France during his various trips, and Ambassador Lenain's visual impressions of contemporary Indian life and landscapes. It took them several months of happy collective work – sorting, selecting and compiling – to bring out this book with reverse covers, ‘In India’ and ‘To France’ - a photographic reflection of their love for India, France and photography.
