Satyajit Ray: A Vision of Cinema
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.
