Satyajit Ray's work put India on the map of world cinema and led Akira Kurosawa to say of him: ""Not to have seen the cinema of Ray means existing in the world without seeing the sun or the moon."" Beginning with Pather Panchali, released fifty years ago this year, Ray won almost every major prize, including an Oscar for lifetime achievement. What makes him unparalleled in cinema is that he was personally responsible for all aspects of his films-from script to music. Published as a lavish album, the hundreds of illustrations in this book include drawings by Ray, film stills and photographs by Nemai Ghosh, who accompanied Ray and observed his work for nearly twenty-five years.

Review:

'Ray does not lack champions... and one of the most tireless is Andrew Robinson, whose awesome slab of a book documents in pictures Ray's diverse life as an image maker.'- The Times '[Ray's] dizzying catalogue of achievement is knitted together by Robinson's expert text, presenting context and commentary that are informed by an obvious deep affection and feeling for Ray's cinema.' - The Times 'With its informed text by Ray expert Andrew Robinson and hundreds of stills taken by the director's on-set stills man Nemai Ghosh, this impressively presented volume will hopefully introduce this master filmmaker to a new generation of admirers.' - Film Review 'The layout of the collection is exemplary, as is the quality of the reproductions.' 'The visual riches of the volume are complemented by detailed captions' 'Robinson sums up the fundamentals of Ray's crowded career concisely and with great warmth; it is astonishing how much information and insight he has managed to pack into his contributions.' Literary Review '...vast and sumptuous...'Times Books Section,December 2005
