Her breakthrough work in color. Not your typical tourist/photographer who comes, goes, and moves on, Aurinko created her lyrical photographs between 2007 and 2012, in the course of several extended visits to India. Celebrated for her black-and-white street photography, this is Aurinko's very first foray into color. And what a gorgeous palette it is: "Aurinko's rich, deep, textured, and muted photographs are the urban spaces of contemporary India that have somehow escaped the imprint of globalization and retain the integrity and sense of a culture that has existed for thousands of years. Aurinko fuses the people and places that she records through a distinctive sensibility that crystallizes her response. They are a way of being towards India that she has discovered, the dimension or side of peace at the core and luxuriant sensation surrounding it. These photographs are an act and an expression of love" (Michael Weinstein). "I cannot possibly explain what it is about India that draws me back again, and makes me crave those visits. I only know that India changed me, and my life, forever. The country brought color into my black-and-white world in a way that no other place has" (Susan Aurinko). "India Song", Aurinko's lyric poem, captures her response to this uniquely beautiful place: "So much life, / copious, conspicuous, / serene and chaotic, / vivid as holi, / lovely as truth". An absolute "must-have" title for India and Susan Aurinko collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition of 400 numbered and signed copies. It is indicated as such on the 12 X 12 inch, large-format Hewlett Packard (HP) Z3100 original color print that is laid into the book, and is very prominently and beautifully titled, numbered, and signed in black ink-pen on recto by the artist/photographer: "Pink Towers, Varanasi 2007 (Edition Number) /400 Susan Aurinko". It is also very boldly and beautifully signed in red pen-marker on the half-title page itself by Susan Aurinko. This title will become a contemporary photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Limited Edition available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 36 color plates, 1 original color print. One of the most brilliant American artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy. ISBN 0578117207. Bookseller Inventory # 19928
