Waswo X. Waswo provides us with a glimpse into India's ageless soul with a series of enigmatic, subtly crafted photographs. But India Poems: The Photographs is not just another glossy travel book for the tourist market. It presents the reader with a thoughtful debate on aesthetics, and examines the moral and cultural difficulties a Western photographer must face when taking a supposedly 'Third World' country for his subject.
