Synopsis: All photographs in this book were taken in Benares between 1993 and 1997, apart from those on pages 77-87 which were taken during the "Ardh Kumb Mela" in Allahabad near Benares in January 1995. 135 pages; 100 full-page duo-toned b&w plates; 12 x 11 inches.

From Library Journal: India and the people who live there are the subjects of these books, each of which demonstrates a different approach to the art of documentary photography. A seasoned photojournalist, McCullin first visited India on assignment in the late 1960s. This survey of his photographs from many subsequent visits includes 90 black-and-white and four color imagesAmostly group scenes and portraits. Some of his images are well known, especially the street scenes depicting beggars and the portraits of refugees. These sometimes disturbing images depict a people and their circumstances over the last half of this century and represent an impressive collection for the photographer. Whereas McCullin photographs his subjects in a classic documentary style, with clarity, precision, and a sense of distance, Ackerman takes a more emotional and immediate approach. This young photographer's first book comprises primarily images made in Benares between 1993 and 1997. Though the title refers to the cremation grounds to which people travel from all over India to end their temporal existence, Ackerman's photographs are kinetically alive. His eye ranges from the streets to the cremation grounds, from interior moments to ritual dances. The approximately 70 images depart from straight documentary by inviting bursts of light and dark, blur, grain, and texture as aesthetic components. The result is a compelling collection of charged images. Where McCullin shows us what India and its people look like, Ackerman lets us know what India, especially Benares, can feel like. End Time City would make a good addition to academic collections, and both books should be considered for large public libraries.ADebora Miller, Minneapolis, MN

Beautiful copy, Obi intact but it has some chipping at edges:Book is fine or better and is in original plastic wrapper and all covered by protective mylar Though not the typical pilgrim to Benares--India's holy city on the Ganges River--Michael Ackerman reveals in these photographs a reverent fascination with the city's visitors and residents and their faith. Ackerman's search for those moments that hint beyond the surfaces of that city, capturing trance-like glimpses of religious zeal itself. Read Publisher's Description.
